    @Marvey, can we take stock of loaner candidates for Fall (and Winter of 2016)? I've seen a number of ideas circulating in various threads, maybe we can bring them all in here and prioritize them--@velvetx just solved one by donating his Valhalla 2 of course.

    Of course, we did spend some serious bank on Elear and Utopia recently, so perhaps our options are tight or non-existent at this point.

    I have one idea in mind, the Metrum Musette. Would be great to get that out to those of you with Yggys and Gumbys for comparison.

    Guys,

    I got the Mitchell and Johnson electrostat GLSE HP from the Kickstarter campaign. If you are still considering this as a candidate, I will be happy to donate this for the loaner program. Please let me know and whom to mail it to.

    Looking forward to seeing a poll to vote on it maybe? Always wanted to hear the Valhalla 2 with my HD650 since it's recommended so much. How about the Perfect Seal Deca IEM for a loaner?

    Would love to hear a Jotunheim before buying, but may not be able to hold out for the loaner tour :)

    @schiit did offer to send the Jotun to @Marvey and out on tour. Marv, let us know where that ends up and I'll start the loaner thread off accordingly.

    @daytripper, check my signature on the Valhalla 2 tour

    I would love to see the Andromeda and the Focal Elear come back around again. I would also like to see at least one pair of those TFZ iems.

    A turn table loaner in the future would be nice.

    I could put my Musette out for loaner but I want someone to send me a decent DAC or turntable (to burrow temporary) because I don't want to be without a source.

    I'm pretty sure Jason said he was putting a unit out on loan to us.
