The thing is, I plan to upgrade around December, to probably a full blown LA7000. And I dont plan on buying another DAC, for many many years.


In that case I would go for the latest and greatest. Since you intend to utilize USB at least part of the time, the new model will be more of a sure thing. Some computers didn't pair well with the prior model via USB for some reason. The new update should be pretty much guaranteed to be reliable due to the chipset used.

Just wondering, can both the XLR and RCA line out be used at the same time so I can have it feed into two amps?

Yes

Thanks for the advice.

Awesome, I ordered the MKII last week and it should be here soon =) I am soooo excited haha. These will be driving my Ultrasone Pro 900's, but I may have to upgrade to D7k's or something... I'll come back with my impressions once it arrives! This is my first big dac/amp purchase haha

Yes. I have XLR feeding my XM6 and RCA feeding my GigaWorks T40 Series II.

You guys are in for a treat. I picked up my D100 as my first proper dac/amp as well (very much based on Project86's favorable review), and I'm enjoying it immensely with my different CIEMs.

Except you had yours for a while for now :) The D100 is my first real good dac and i absolutely love it. For the price there really is nothing to complain about and it doesn't take up too much space.

Just a minor bump to advise that my review of the D100 MKII is posted:

In case anyone is interested. It's a nice update, nothing revolutionary but it does end up improving in several ways. I think they have pretty much squeezed every bit of performance that they possibly could from this unit without raising the price. Still highly recommended at the sub-$500 price point.

sweet, but after my frantic splurge on a D7k I am more broke then Jimi Hendrix. 

Sigh but now i really do need one  to get the best out of the D7k lol

Huh, that is a good deal, might jump on that as long as its the version II and shipping is free.

 

I just tried looking though and couldnt fnd that seller...

 

 

I have a question about this unit. The Low and High headphones outputs: I would like to leave my Denon AH-D5000's plugged into the Low and my Sennheiser HD-650's plugged into the high so I dont have to switch the cables each time I want to listen to the other. However what I would like to know is how does the D100II handle controlling the outputs to these two ports? Is there a switch or button to switch between one or the other or do they both just output a signal? And if they both output a signal what might be bad about leaving both headphones plugged in at the same time?
