R&D takes some time, but at least one scenario seems to be right around the corner... Symphones Magnum325 - $595 same as PS-500. One can wonder if a Symphones Magnum1K would appear in the future, costing the same as GS-1000 ($995) but competing with PS-1000 ($1695).
Edit: Order went through, so I'll join the exclusive Magnum club soon. Crazy.. when I joined this site all I wanted was a soundcard with swappable opamp and a HP for about $99.
