 I am impressed with the new firmware.  Every now and then Kingwa makes a firmware tweak that has a significant effect (other than the usual small improvements).  I'd say anyone using a usb to spdif converter now has a interesting decision to make.  I actually thought that the firmware update from earlier this year put the usb 32 on par with the Audiophilleo with Pure Power (technically made the SQ difference between the two too small to justify the added $1000+ cost of a...

That thing runs on a battery right?  You have to love that.  I may have to try that out as well.  This is fun, expensive, but fun.
