  This is headed in the direction of moderator intervention, if it continues, so I respectfully suggest letting the joke drop, now, even though I am not personally offended by it in any way
 Are you on the development team? I would not assume USB-DAC functionality is necessarily possible with a firmware update. It might be, but I wouldn't assume it. Perhaps there may be additional circuitry requirements within the DAP. But if you are on the development team, then I bow to your greater knowledge on the matter.
 Sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience... Did you read the head-fi thread dedicated to ear-impressions?
  Thanks for the heads-up on that.

  And yet... something made you go ahead and post anyway... So, who do you have to blame?

LOL - this thread has been silent for ages!   Don't hold your breath waiting, or you may suffocate
 Good question. I'm wondering if the sound difference between the different models is achieved via different component choices in the amplification stage, or via different implementation in software domain of the FPGA.
