If I see this in cambridge dealers in the Philippines, I think I'm gonna be getting them right away cause I need an upgrade for my basic pioneer dvd player and laptop.
Well, I'm still considering this DAC as a spare/backup for my second rig, but I'm not ready to pull the trigger after buying a Stax Omega 2 Mk2 on Tuesday.
I have three DAC that I use the most - I use the Apogee mini-DAC in my balanced rig, and my HR Micro DAC in my bedside rig, and a Super Pro DAC707 with Sigma 11 PSU for my spare rig in the basement (which when used with the Sigma 11 is basically like the Headroom and close to the Pico DAC as well, but not without the Sigma 11).
I thought about a Stello DA100 as a spare DAC for the basement rig, so I can use the DAC707 with my Apple TV in the bedroom, but I don't need a $700 DAC for that since it gets used much less. So the DACMagic makes more sense, but the Pico is an excellent DAC/Pre-amp if my source is a laptop so I haven't been in a rush.
