I think the display is a very nice touch and that was what draw my attention to the DMK IV and ultimately brought me to this site.
I find it a nice feature being able to display the information more throughly than other units that are more "mechanical" oriented, however i don't know having it on all the time makes me think that the display will eventually burn out one day eventually (being realistic i expect 2-3 yrs of heavy usage) sometimes is just not needed because you are not focused on the unit all the time.
I would like to know if you can implement like the mp3 players, the display goes OFF may be after 30 secs of inactivity, then a few small LEDs that display the basic info, like the source (i.e. usb, coax, spdif) to indicate the unit is running.
That would be a great feature if you can implement that. The 1 knob design is very clever where you can press down for selecting the modes i like it hope it still be there.
I would drop the remote, that is an unnecessary feature IMO because it isn't used much, people will use them on their desk so it'll be arms reach anyways.
I hope the new unit had balanced XLR amped outputs, and of course the DAC XLR out but may be i'm asking too much
I think the new DAC should have aesthetics that relates to the DMK IV so you can build your brand identity.
Thanks for your advice!
If you need 1 knob design, the VFD/LCD display is required because it can display more informations!
Any way, we will adopt more advice from some other head-fier and will design a wonderful product soon!
Thanks for everybody's support, Your support is our strength!
