There is no information on the DAC.

Anybody has any idea, whether it is possible to power them from AC? I think it would make a good desktop amp for me.

Nice looking amp. I may hold off on getting the R\S Predator at least until there is a review of the Toucan and DAC.

they should work out about the same $'s

from snakes to birds, indeed...

to quote Friedrich Nietzsche:

 

"He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying."

 

looks like they went straight from slithering to flying.  pretty impressive.

It does have an internal charging battery,therefore AC is possible.

I am going to go out on a limb and purchase this as soon as I can sell my ALO Rx. I'm excited.

Let me know how you like it! As you can tell from my sig, I took your advice and have the S:Flo2/Alo combo right now. However, this amp also intrigues me and I wouldn't mind having a portable balanced setup with my netbook.

Definitely. First it's the amp. Then it's balanced cables for the K702.

I wouldn't mind balancing my RE0's.

I like the connector better than the one used on the Protector. It also accepts balanced input.

post #28 of 37

What is that connector exactly? Is it a 3.5->balanced?

post #29 of 37

It's a kind of 6-pin mini xlr

post #30 of 37

Another amp, another connector.  At least they are making a balanced DAC to go with it and have balanced input. Looks like an improvement on the camera accessory connector the Protector uses though.  There's also Hifiman who took the obvious option and are using a TRRS plug.

I hope not, the 8740 is rubbish, seriously. People only like it because it's so rolled-off that it doesn't sound harsh as a Cirrus does with steep cut-off filter.  But that's another issue entirely...
