Morning Guide-Bros, I am using this post to probe what items (big, small, even non-audio related) you want me to review. (all will be yard-sale’d afterwards) Video of me explaining in relative detail…
I have a ton of retailers and companies that usually send me things directly which I will link here. If you want something reviewed that is from any of these sites I can probably just ask for it. So feel free to recommend and if voted for those won’t go towards the spending goal

The desired result is to get an actual list of items (20, 50, 1000) that you truly believe need a review and those items will be voted for by my supporters for the final shopping list for purchasing.
Feel like the review channel has kicked into almost an auto-pilot for the last few years and this should shake things loose and get things going again. Thanks again for participating and welcome to any new HFG members. Enjoy your stay.

I’d like to see you review a Susvara on a real endgame source chain. No topping or SMSL bullshit. I’m talking something like an Antipodes K50>Rockna Wavedream>Hypsos/Oor(which might be easy since I think you still have that one) and solid cables so around. Every endgame headphone I see reviewed always has some corners cut in the source chain and it’s infuriating. The amount of people I see on Reddit plugging Utopias into dongles or Susvaras into 789s is sickening.
As an addon, HE6se v2 with proper pads and mods on a Parasound A21+. Would love to hear more opinions on that combo because I’m pretty sure it’s one of my endgame combos but I never hear of anyone’s experiences with beefy speaker amps driving them.

I want to see my go-to bargain hifi Craigslist find reviewed, the Vandersteen model 2. I have a pair combined with the vcc1 center and they have been amazing powerhouses to my 5.1.4 home theater setup!

I know you mentioned they were supposed to send you a pair way back when. Perhaps they can send it to you heavily discounted.
