  1. Hi,

    since we are in the middle of August, do you have any information on when this DAC will be available and what the price will be?


  2. Had it in my hands at last. For a start, brilliant sound but somewhat ‘harsh’ at first impression. Hope it gets better in a few weeks’ time after proper run in.
