Picture Sunday, yo! Audiophiles cross the crazy line all the time. Special headphones for this song, tailor-made EQ for that one, separate DAPs for hip hop and jazz. If you’re a VentureCraft Valoq owner, you can spend 600$ on an op-amp set. Lo’ and behold, each set makes actual, measurable difference, not to mention skews sound.
So when you’ve got Burson’s bristling op-amps and no Lycan, what do you do? You plug in the bristler to the Valoq you borrowed from Musica Acoustics. God, it looks cool. But wait, you can’t plug both sides at the same time.
Which is when you really really wish Valoq’s op-amp slots were spaced farther apart. While there aren’t that many custom op-amp trees out there, you can be sure that enterprising makers will, because there is a will, find a way.
And if they’re smart – able to see the insanity of the audiophile for what it is ($$$) – DAP makers will follow with transformer cases, bulging chassis, etc., in order to mix up the game.
