Anyone have thoughts on this unit? Is it worthy of $1300??

Hi Wes Miaw.
It is true what you are saying, there IS a lot of USB to Coax converters. But If I spend 1300$ on a DAC I probably gonna get a very good USB to coax converter, just to make sure it wont be the bottle neck of the system. So a BEL canto (495$) or a Empirical audio (695-1500++$). Because I will not know which converter will be best suited.
BUT if the device comes with a usb converter, which I hope and assume will be on par with the DACs performance, I can be certain that I get the best converter regarding price and performance. Since it has been chosen by you, and I assume no one knows the DACs potential better then you, and thus the converter will be perfect
And the USB option might be cheaper then what I would have bought from a third party manufacturer.
So please think really hard about adding a USB converter, preferably one that use some kind of "new and improved" innovative technology. We love that kind of stuff But seriolsly, innovative is appreciated. Assuming that is is better then the traditional solution ofcource
Have you concidered adding a BNC input (I2S)?
You will not ship to Europe yet, right??
