    If anyone is hoping to procure a Walnut of their own, contact Tom via beezar.com.
    The last run was 5 pieces, so (while I have not asked him about it) I assume he would make more and small runs aren't a problem.

    Just a note - the Cirrus (Wolfson) chip used in this DAC is being discontinued. Digikey lists the last buy as 07/23/22. The chips are currently out of stock everywhere with lead times in the 6 month range if they become available at all. There does not appear to be a replacement on the horizon. Exactly what that means for the future of the Walnut is not clear, but obviously it's not great news.
