I'd like to see the Dutch & Dutch 8cs, the Kii 3s, the JBL 4367s, the Gradient 1.4s and the Revel Performa 228Be's tested. One of those will be my endgame I'll wager.

If you ever get your hands on more DAPs, I hope to see more measurements of some of the latest, like the iBasso DX160, Hiby R3 Pro/R5, Fiio M11 Pro with THX and the M15, etc.

Interested in seeing Fiio Q5s with the AMC THX module, the new BTR5, it even IFi Audio’s xDSD and xCAN.

I would predict that for the majority of those products it would require some volunteers. I believe the R3 Pro is $199 and the BTR5 is $149 MSRP.

Also, thanks to you and the user who sent in the Scarlet 2i2 for measurement.

I'd love my Counterpoint NPM amps to be tested but shipping them would cost me an arm and a leg!

I'd like to see more vintage products tested so I can see how much technology has changed over the years.

I'd like to see what the dCS Bartok looks like. It's outside the usual focus of this forum (at $15K for a streamer/DAC/headphone amp) but it is claimed to be the ne plus ultra of one box streaming DACs that could be reasonably aspired to by an extremely dedicated enthusiast willing to part with that much money. It's the current darling of every subjective review I've come across.

Looking forward to seeing the new Monolith HTP-1 16 channel processor reviewed. Is there a chance somebody got it more right than wrong on one of these? Inquiring minds want to know...

Given the move to streaming audio, I'd love to see more testing of streamers, streamer/DAC combos etc. There's more than the usual confusion/BS out there regarding these products. And btw, thanks Amir for all your work on our behalf.

I would like the headphone output of the Samsung Tab S4 and Huawei Mate 20X tested, as well as the quality of their aptX Bluetooth signal output.
