 We are looking to open up preorders for these amps in a couple weeks on CavalliAudio.com. Then the manufacturing run will commence once the final designs are complete and up to CA caliber. The final amps will have more refined casework, as the units at CanJam were prototypes. The Carbon is just about finalized, and the portable is having the battery and charging circuitry finished. Since the portable is fully discrete, it requires more juice than OP amps. It is sounding...
Uncola is right, final pricing is still being set, but I can say these figures are in the ballpark!
 It will be hard to top the AK UI in a prosumer DAP device. If you experienced some of the others out there, you would be grateful for your AK UI  The iPod generation... We're all spoiled!
I will have the opportunity to directly A/B the following if anyone is interested in notes.   Hugo > Liquid Gold > Abyss (balanced)   Resolution Audio Cantata Music Center > Liquid Gold > Abyss (balanced)   Cantata will have DAC output options for balanced and unbalanced. Input options will be optical via SN7, and USB/Coax with AP/PP and I have Heimdall2, Cardas Clear, and Syn Research on hand. 
Aw no, it's not like that. I can't stand being sequestered to a listening spot because of thick cables. That's not fun. Your environments sound fine to me. Hugo can move around and be adjusted with SN7, for sure. But I wouldn't expect it to stay connected thriugh a 7.5 or higher earthquake
Congrats, man! Of course we can converse about the accuracy, and whether or not it is worth the expense, but at the end of the day, the Abyss is far and away the most enjoyable piece of audio gear I've ever heard. So, that's a priceless value to me. I think you'll enjoy! It's also the only headphone I've heard that, when I finally heard it, despite all the hype, was still completely blown away : )
   Yes. So it works fine for motionless play, it just does not push in all the way to the last click, so on-the-go would be tough. It sounds fantastic, with no discernible deterioration in the signal due to it not seating 100%. I also have the original chassis with the impossibly small port holes.  Especially if you're in an urban, or environment loaded with RF signals, optical is something you should definitely consider. And the SN7 is fairly priced for what you get, in...
 Dave, 1. Does it happen when the power supply is both unplugged and plugged in?2. At what level is the battery charge, happens at full?3. Does it occur when cycling through all of the various input options? Not just USB?4. Is crossfeed turned on, and at what level?5. Does the buzzing change dynamically with the volume level, or stay the same no matter the level? Still at zero volume?6. Can you verify that the buzzing occurs with nothing connected to Hugo whatsoever except...
I don't know if there are subtle gain differences at the same volume setting between optical and USB affecting my assessment.  I don't know if I just have an insane amount of interference with my LAN network having impact on my USB. I don't know if the technology in optical has made a sneaky and significant advancement.  But I prefer my MbP TOS out with SN7 to Hugo, over my: Synergistic Research/Nordost Heimdall2/Cardas Clear USB to AP2 + PP to Hugo. It sounds more...
