    If we are lucky we get the DAC for loaner in 1 to 2 months.


    In the meantime register for loaner! Thanks.

    Let me know when it gets closer. SBAF can contribute to shipping insurance costs. It is the least we can do from the USA since you guys do contribute quite a bit.

    If you really need to fill space, include me. I'm interested but I feel like a primo DAC would be wasted on me. Put me in any spot that makes sense.

    So bringing it up again.

    Looked it up, it costs 4750USD and similar price in EU. Depends on the store I guess.

    Considering that good 3-way speakers cost 10k- 30k to buy from a store this is not much for a high-end source imo. But let's see how it sounds.

    interesting in so far as it offers an analog input and analog attenuation making a preamplifier redundant. Also nice to have a 32 Bit USB Input, in case you do DRC at 64 Bit you can reduce bitdepth to 32 Bit and go into the DAC without the need for dithering. Alas I already have a preamplifier, am somewhat DAC deaf and not willing to spend that amount of money for a DAC.
    Great initiative to get a loaner for EU friends.

    I'd sign up if I had better headphones. Have fun, it's great opportunity for Old World SBAFers.

    Yeap, we don't have many loaners (i wish i had more free time to help with this) and something like this is greatly appreciated. Let's hope that it comes to be. Hopefully it will kick the EU loaners a notch.
