    @SineDave here has a D-Sonic M3a 1200S from D-Sonic he wants to loan out. Anyone interested in taking it for a spin? @Marvey, something new for the solid state power amp adventure thread?

    If it's open to contributors, I'd certainly be interested.

    This will be a new unit from the manufacturer. Once we have a few folks lined up, we can get it shipped.

    Count me in for this loaner! I have some digital amplifier company inline maraschinos coming to me this month too! So I will actually be able to make a useful comparison for once. just a reminder I'm in Hawaii

    I think I'd be interested. But please put me last as I'm still getting my system up and running.

    Since we haven't had any more sign-ups, i'll go ahead and get started on getting ready to ship in the next couple of weeks.

    Is there nobody on the west coast that would like to give this a shot? I'd be happy to slot after @uncola and split the shipping cost back from Hawaii since my shipping cost back to @SineDave or Dennis or whoever would be fairly cheap. I'm perfectly fine with it the way it is, but if someone wants a change, I certainly don't mind going later.

    We'll help you out with shipping since we have no WCers.

    I am heading to pick up the amplifier in the next couple of days to prep for shipment. @Vansen or @sphinxvc please send me the shipping address for the first stop.

    When shipping from here on out, please insure the box for $1800.

    I'm looking forward to your thoughts. I have found these amps are basically my nirvana. Time to see what others think and compare notes.

    Oh snap. I am in Seattle until August 2nd. I'd like to take part, but if the logistics of that time frame don't work, you can drop me.

    Does this have the Ncore modules?

    I believe he's using Pascal modules (or at least he was at one time). He used to use Hypex before they released NCore but then moved to Pascal. That being said, I couldn't really find it on his site, so he could have moved on to something else. Perhaps @SineDave can find out from Dennis?

    Either way, the current Pascal modules seem to be in the same class as NCore (at least from the buzz). I'm still skeptical of both until I get some time with them in my system.

    I might like to hear this, if there is room on the tour. Color me very impressed by what I heard out of Ncore based amps at the LA show.

    Ok, added you @bazelio. Now we have 2 people on the WC. @SineDave - let us know how much shipping is, will probably help some decide if they want to stay on the tour.
