i just got a RWA signature 30 that runs off battery power...when it's turned on the charging circuit is cut off. when it's turned off the charging circuit is turned on and charging ensues. so it's never really running on grid power, but you can keep it plugged in all the time. if you have it on while plugged in it doesn't charge since the charging circuit is cut off...so you can actually drain your battery even if it's plugged in.

i'm guessing that's how the pico will work (you can correct me if i'm wrong, justin)...

Yes, you can. There is a linear regulated power supply inside the amp for when running on wall power. The amp will switch to the wall power when plugged in, allowing the battery to charge without the charge controller being falsely triggered by peak amplifier currents. The battery does not continuously charge, it tapers off and stops when the battery is full. The charging is indicated by an LED on the front panel.

I would like to confirm my pre-order with the DAC option.

Thank you.

The continuous charging is not good for li-ion batteries. Justin made the right choice with the Pico's charging system.

Awesome setup.

I can attest this thing sounds awesome. I listened to it at the boston head-fi meet. At the time I was just getting started in the whole headphone scene. I wish I has known I was talking to Justin at the time.
