I just read a very favourable review of it (in Dutch, on hifi.nl ).
Seems like a very stylish and good sounding amp.
7 kg, so it's solidly build.

I imagine this gives it a bit of heft!

If I am not mistaken, the above picture is of the Atom with regular amp.

This one is of the Headphone Edition innards...spot the differences

The top board is basically the same...it is the bottom board (not visible in the picture) that holds the new headphone amp.

It has been a long time since I lusted after a piece of kit for which I have no use...got to resist

I am now in the stage of thinking what to sell so as to create a new use case.
