NNNNOOOOOO!!! I only see this discussion now because I see the wonderfully useful addition of the past few weeks has been undone!

The folded format made it SOOO easy to scan the list and identify the new additions since the last date you visited. Back this way, its dozens of page-downs to do the same. :facepalm:

Wow. Well, I'll keep the organization this way for now since preserving the search function is more important.

I'll turn Post #2 into a collapsible chronological list.

Oh I just saw the idsd black. can you please use the full name? ( iFi micro iDSD Black Label DAC )
Fixed. I normally don't append "DAC" unless the name becomes hard to identify (every item in that particular list is a DAC, and the same goes for other gear).
