The Pico amp only is expected to be about $300, with the DAC option $500

Is there an ETA on it?

I know this is kind of broad but Fall 2007 is what I've heard.

I asked Justin this at the meet and he was appropriately vague, "a month or so". He had just gotten the extrusions for the enclosures so it's pretty much ready to go live as soon as he's done the final fit up and testing.

i've been waiting forever for the new modules for the GS-1, too, but i guess justin's had other priorities...
I think he's having parts problems, as in a manufacturer has not released a part that they said they would. Completely out of his control and in no way priority related.

I'm very excited for this dac/amp combo. I've been searching for 2 months for a combo that would be right for me. Had I not run into Head-Fi I would have never known about the Pico early on. I own Justin's GLite DPS combo and love it. I am happily awaiting for this amp to be done.

So, while I may make a larger version that also has an optical input (at least a year away), it will need to be quite a bit larger to fit a larger
battery. I'm only interested in sound quality and not 200+ hour
battery life, but I would still like the battery life to be at least 20 hours.
Please Sir. I will hold my breath for a year waiting for this.

Other H1xx owners who will jump all over such a high end DAC plus amp offering with optical in, please raise your voices too.

Anyone that uses a notebook all day may also jump on this. It is a killer unit for notebook use.

I heard this at the MD/VA meet. It's definitely a winner, to my ears. If I hadn't dedicated all my funds to a good home system, I'd be all over this (and still I'm tempted).

I guess that works as well but at my computer at home I am using a Lavry DA10 and my microZOTL and/or will be using my Yamamoto HA-02 instead.

Ah, I see what you mean. Indeed, it's more for the road warrior than for stationary long-term setups. But a great addition for any computer setup regardless.

I absolutely agree on this one.

Actually if you are using it with a computer, including a notebook, the soon to be released Pico sounds perfect already - USB is all you need. It's those with iRiver H1xx DAPs or portable CD players with optical outs that need the optical in. I hope that we eventually see such a model...
