    Big thanks to Jeremy at Garage 1217 for providing the loaner unit. Please post your review/impression/thoughts in the thread. Keep in mind that we are looking for honest feedback here as that is what I explain to every vendor who is willing to provide a loaner for our group. The only thing I ask is to make sure to stay constructive.

    Below is the current list for people next in line so if you could please post when you send this off to the next person that would be great (and organized). I have added direct links to the users so you can just PM them from this post to get address information. How to read this list is a person with Bold User Name currently has the item and people have already had it it will have user names.
    1. @velvetx (Norcal)
    2. @purrin (Socal)
    3. @Tim Thomas (Motor City)
    4. @sphinxvc (NYC)
    5. TBD
    6. TBD
    7. TBD
    8. TBD
    9. TBD
    10. TBD
    Our time for each member is currently TBD days signups are limited as our time frame for this loaner will be 60 days (when the list gets populated will fill in how many days and provide an update). When you ship the product out please insure this package for $350 and provide a tracking number. Also please look over the new loaner program guide in my signature.

    I've already heard this, so you can take me off the list. I can always copy/pasta my impressions from CS.

    Can't wait to hear more people chime in about this! What tubes are being shipped with the unit? That will make a big difference.

    Nope, I own it. Just excited to see more people get a chance to hear it.

    Tubes make a huge difference with this amp, though, and could completely change someone's opinion with certain headphone pairings.

    I had one for a while and still need to write my review. Sweet amp. Wish I'd tried it with Electro-Harmonix 12BH7s.

    Got those for the Sunrise III and they're sweet.

    In regards to different tubes due to it being a loaner and not ours it will have to utilize stock tubes.

    ... see now this... this doesn't help lol

    I purchased the Starlight demo I got... liked it so much... now I wonder should I demo the Ember 2 >.> maybe not as I can't afford to keep it

    but seriously, I'd be done for trying it. I have a nice little reserve of tubes I can roll into atm

    I'd love to audition the Ember II, and compare to my Magni 2U and Vali 2. Thanks!

    I've placed an order for an Ember, so you can remove me from the list.
