When will we see a standalone Isabellina?

I could not do a side-by-side with the Isabella and the Zana, since I have only heard the Zana at meets, but there is still no doubt in my mind that the Isabella is the better sounding headphone amp. I did not feel the Zana was any better than my Singlepower Extreme. I did feel the Isabella was better than the Extreme.
I would love to see Vinne/RWA make a headphone-amp only version of the Isabella at a reduced price as well
I am sure about it!
I didn't find to much about the amp (info)
I know that because of the poplar raising of headphones amp - seem like many brands "push" this thing into their products
I won't be surprise if I will buy a micro wave with headphones amp
So, I wonder how good it is
With maybe more depth into it, like testing it with Grado GS1000 and Senn 650 and AKG and so on
With many kinds of music and styles and so on
I'm looking into adding a headphone amp into our microwave...
The Isabella with headphone output drives Senn 650s, AKG K1000s, GS1000s, etc. We actually had it at the ALO Audio table at Can Jam '08 last May (it was still a prototype unit back then, but it did its thing!)
My personal favorite headphones were Vicki's Sony R-10s - they are breathtaking with the Isabella and I wanted to by her R-10s, but she turned me down.
How is it when connected to a PC ?
Using USB or COAX ?
Any jitter or something like that that might turn off some of us here ?
