Will remaining units be sold off similar to the CTH amp?

Can we get another drop please?
I have just read through some posts here and find myself dismayed that manufacturers would build and sell a "conversion" cable from three wire single ended to four wire balanced. It is hard enough for new audiophiles to get real info without predatory companies muddying up the waters. This only proves that many companies don't care and will gloss over (lie) facts about their products. If they will do this for small cable adapters, imagine what the advertising for commercial products do. I have decades of experience with audio and can only suggest that ALL adapters are suspect. If you need an adapter to connect two things together, it is likely they are not compatible and they chose connectors to prevent improper interconnection of devices. I am pleased Massdrop placed the warning in the box and you read it! You get an "A".
Hello all, I have used my CLC now for a few months and really enjoy listening to music on it. My Shure SRH 1840's are not known for their bass, but the CLC seems to improve it. I have not done a direct comparison between the CLC and CTH amps, but the CLC seems to be tighter in the low frequencies. Liquid is an apt model name for this amp, it is very smooth and free of edge. I should note that I am using it in SE only for now. I can drive it balanced but can't use the balanced out as yet. Very nice design, I am pleased to own such a fine sounding amp at a price mortals can afford.

I note that most of you are refering to the Liquid Carbon X as LCX. I noted this after I used CLC in my post. Sorry to create confusion; I was using Cavelli Liquid Carbon initials. Same amp.
Hi guys I have my CLC for couple of months and can’t complain about it, but couple of days I had to move it to another place and when I plug power supply in it it start sparkling.It does every time when I unplugged it and plug it back.

Have you contacted Massdrop?
My LCX +SDAC just arrived, and maybe I'm slow but I can't seem to use the RCA passthrough from the LCX to my CTH?
Waiting patiently for another drop of this. I see the LCX+SDAC is up right now but I don’t need nor want a DAC section so I would prefer to have this standalone unit.

me too
Question: For the XLR input, which pin is hot and which is cold (2 or 3)? My DAC can output both. And will it damage the LCX if the hot and cold is reversed?

The professional standard in the US is pin 2 is "hot" and is marked with a plus sign. Pin three is the minus connection. I would be sure Alex is aware of this standard and followed it. Using the reverse connection would lose absolut phase and is not recommended. We hope all manufacturers keep the correct phase throughout their equipment including headphones. HTH and is timely, as I don't see a date you posted it.
Drop this again already! I’m sick of waiting. It doesn’t help that the hybrid one is up all the time reminding me.
Someone needs to explain to me why the CTH is constantly dropping and the LCX is nowhere to be found, this is especially frustrating since, given the balanced nature of the LCX, many consider it to be a superior product to the CTH.

Maybe I shouldn't even bother. The Cavalli Liquid Platinum is coming to Monoprice soon, which (for double the price) should render both the CTH and LCX obsolete.
Hello will this drop....
Any idea if there will be another drop?
I wish this had the tube.... I wanted this + tube. I got the just the tube. Give us Tube + Balanced. Make us happy!
Anyone wanna sell/trade theirs? Come find me on Headfi.
