Desktop Amps in the future?

As an owner of your Supreme DAC, I am a happy customer.

I was wondering if sometime in the future, you are going to start producing desktop non-portable headphone amps? Maybe something similar to the M^3 but your own design. I would certainly be interested, and I'm sure others would too if the price to quality ratio was right.

Any chance of us seeing one in the near future?

I know I would be VERY interested in a desktop offering from HOTAUDIO. But it has to be like a 40lbs behemoth and you have to call it the Northern Rage AMP/DAC!

Hmmm, well I constantly do research and built units of all types...
My focus though is usually on small portable units.

Eventually I will build a desktop version of an amp / DAC combo, perhaps even with a low power (12 Watts or so) power amplifier built in...

But as always, I try to make the DACs as small as possible as to decrease noise and make them more affordable.

There is almost a direct ratio between size and costs.

So you're right

It might be a 40lb behemoth, lol, well maybe 10 lbs...

And I do like the name "Northern Rage", although everyone will shorten that to "RAGE" or "NR"

I believe the DD is enough for those...

I know for sure that a few people are using that combo, but whether they have an amplifier as well I do not know.

Anyone ???

Its been a slow day at the office, so I found some time to post some pics of my newest toy. I hope Mr. HOTAUDIO doesn't mind.

In his dress blues:






Out in the wild!:

Hopefully it'll be sooner than later...

I spent some time in Canada for uni, and knowing your currency perhaps you could call it the screaming loonie...

I'm still interested in a desktop amp from HotAudio, too. And that's a hell of a name, so it'd have to really deliver the goods to live up the it. I have no doubt that you could do it, though.

Wholly cow!!!

I've been looking for a "GRAPHIC DESIGNER", lol

No kidding, that is GREAT STUFF!!!

WOW, I'm blown away....

I am great at making headphone amps, but am TERIBLE at designing graphics...

If your not in advertising and graphic design, you're in the wrong business...
post #401 of 771
I work in sales & marketing, but am not a graphical designer by any stretch. I really only dabble in graphics occasionally and can probably achieve maybe 5% of what a real professional can create. Glad you liked it though!



Anyways back on topic!
