Progressive, Awesome bud, congrats they must be sounding amazing after many days of anxiously awaiting their arrival! I must admit I sometimes pull all nighters fiddling with my equipment when it just arrives or when I am in the middle of an exciting diy project.....

well, have done some critical listening to my new xpa-1's yesterday and my initial impressions are great. using the xda-1 as a preamp, the sound is effortless, clean, and dynamic. no clicks, hums, or pops anywhere. dead quiet. by the way, i am using balanced cables which does make a difference regardless of what others say. so far, so good.
Congratulations on the XPA-1s and welcome. I hope you can pull your self away from them. What speakers are you running?
