@PlasmaNewbie GO-bar will be available in the middle of July, bling version, a month later.

Did you know GO-Bar is currently the most powerful dongle on the market?
I just checked and the Gold went on sale and shipped in the beginning of June, A few days after I asked :(
I've asked a dealer to see if they have sold out yet, if not I should have one shortly. I'm going to be disappointed if I've missed out .... From the reviews it should be brilliant :)

Fingers crossed! On paper the differences are small, but I like that Gold Bar has a nicer, darker background. Also, it's gold plated if you like bling. Would go pretty nicely with a gold Rolex. Or at least a Tudor :)

I'm not the greatest of reviewers but here's my take on both the Go Bar and the Limited Edition Gold Go Bar over at head-fi

Nice review. (I'd recommend a spell check)

I got a standard go bar this week and have been testing it against my Dragonfly Cobalt, using my Focal Elegia headphones and iPhone. I found there weren't huge differences in brighter / popier songs, but the go bar was better at everything else.

I'm not that good at all the technical words, but although I really like the Cobalt, the Go took things up a level. Everything seemed a little clearer. Timing improved, as did separation of instruments. There was a bit more snap to the music, making it feel more immediate and live. Ultimately, these things combined made my music more enjoyable, and I felt myself more involved. Maybe, for the first time, I felt I was actually in the studio with the musicians, rather than on the other side with the engineers. I hope that makes sense.

I didn't realise how bad the spelling was on that review. I was using new keyboard for Samsung tablet, I'm blaming that!
Thanks for the heads up, sorted it now

Thank you for your review :)
You might be interested in the Grammarly keyboard for Android phones, it's an addon that does wonders in correcting your messages. Super cool, if you want to type fast.
