iBasso has switched gears to do more of the small dac market and that really isn't where I think Ray's focus is. He may change focus just to do something different as he seemed to do all of the different kind of amps there are now.
It really is pretty much a smaller P51. For me with the way I have my DIYmodded Touch rig set up, it is of no matter. As for other people, it may make a difference. What I want to know is whether it will be a knob or buttons. I have used that digitally controlled switch and it is pretty good, but still no Stepped Pot killer. I really hope that Ray used some physical volume rather than just buttons. Still, small is good.
