Pros: sound quality, build quality, style

Cons: price, dac selection

I have had this unit now for a week and am fully impressed.  Right out of the box and without any burn-in it delivers breathtaking tone to instruments and vocals alike.  Solid power and strong bass drive even with hard to drive headphones.  Switching to some efficient T5p's still leaves the volume pot at 12:00 with a strong performance.  Clearly attention to detail was paid in getting the 1/8 and 1/4 ports matched in volume.  My only complaints being at this price point it would have been nice to have a sabre dac inside instead of a ti compromises slightly the crispness of the signal when used as a dac and it not being able to output as a dac to the rca outputs at the same time as the headphones.  Would have been nice to have a tube pre-amped volume controlled rca out mode.

After trying one at the recent NYC meet I fel in love with it and bought one right there. It's really sounds great with different headphones but I completely agree that for such price it should have Sabre DAC
Has anyone opened the unit up yet for some photos? Am wondering if the DAC could be later upgraded as I am assuming it is on a separate card probably an off the shelf USB2/DAC as I have seen some companies selling.
