    No shortage of aluminium in your country it seems.

    Aluminium price is high, we do not want to cut cost in this aspect. We are putting attention to the chassis design for various reasons. Audiophile goal in hifi gears is always to minimize resonance, increase stability; hence the thick aluminium with resonance controlled footers are required.

    Have you considered making a demo unit available to the SBAF crew?

    My experience with loaner-tours is that someone, often more than one person, on said tour invariably buys a unit for themselves (I've done this myself, the last time with an MHDT Stockholm V2), which will likely offset the cost of the loan unit in the first place. And, if nothing else, will get some realistic feedback that can be referenced by others.

    Or have you had your implementation measured against, say, the raw Soekris boards in a no-frills configuration?

    I don't say this as a "challenge", but as curious as I am, especially having considered building a DAC around the Soekris boards myself, I think one, or both, of the above, would go a long way to establishing your unit in respect to other price-comparable ones.

    I'd start with @Marvey and go from there.

    Any chance one of those headphone jacks could be replaced with an XLR4? I'm sure there any many people who would rather not use an adapter for their balanced headphones for convenience sake.

    Can be done, it will still be single ended headamp output on a XLR4 jack for those who already has XLR4 cable. The point is, I gotta gather enough interest to do the variant/MK2 model :)

    I think overall people would appreciate the flexibility of having the TRS and XLR4 and this should be the default vs having dual TRS.

    I'm guessing the 24 is a typo? and you probably meant to have *2 for the RCA and XLR connectors

    p.s. and the link is broken

    Sorry to be "negative Nancy" ... but if a Yulong-anything is reasonable comparison, I think you've got a serious value-proposition problem on your hands.

    The sooner this is in the hands of "real" SBAF'ers the better, I think.

    Hi Torq,

    You read my mind. I've already gotten in touch with the loaner program manager. Prashant will announce it soon.

    Do sign up to hear what the soekris can do if you've not already built yours :)

    :)

    I will, for sure, sign-up for that tour.

    I've spent some time playing around with the Soekris board, but my experimentation there isn't super-relevant to your product (nor useful to most people that'll just want to buy a finished DAC). I won't conflate any thoughts I have regarding my utilization of that board with your implementation.

    At the same time, I appreciate your positive engagement here. I think you're going about things the right way.

    Looking forward to hearing your DAC.

    Hi Torq,

    Thank you for willing to try the DAC! Much appreciated.

    Yep I'm a positive guy , one of my happy living philosophy. You're not the first who mention this :punk:

    Wish you and all SBAF members Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Cheers;)
