Hi WBF’ers,
Is there any sound quality benefit to be had from upgrading from Shunyata Denali V2 to Shunyata Everest on flea powered SET amp such as Kondo Ongaku? I have Denali V2 as home audition and was really impressed by the improvement it provided but I also read some thread stating that Everest is THAT MUCH better than Denali V2. I still have until tomorrow to decide whether to return the Denali V2 and commit to put down payment to order Everest. If there is no benefit from upgrading to Everest for my flea powered SET then I will just keep this Denali V2 rather than paying more and wait 8-10 weeks to order Everest in.

Thanks a lot in advance folks!!

I have had both the Denali V1 and the Everest. The Everest is significantly better even though I like the Denali quite a bit.
