Uncle Erik: It'd be good to have your feedback on it.
I just need people to PM me their addresses so, as n3rdling suggested, I can work out the most effective order so that shipping distances can be minimised. Also if anyone wants to have it at a particular time for a meet, let me know. According to Kingwa, he can send one anytime, so I figure once we have a couple more people we can have a look at how the cities spread out and go from there.
Also, Kingwa said he will include a USBFace with it. When someone asked him about the Reference 7, which has USB, he replied that the USB implementation in the USBFace is better (which probably makes a USBFace + Reference 1 a more cost-effective DAC solution) but it's another thing one can experiment with if one chooses.
Currawong- with the DPS3 being in the DI (not in the USB input of his DAC's), plus the discount when you buy both, it's a total no-brainer to get the DI when buying his DAC. I have posted this before but the cost is about $60 more to get the DI versus buying a DAC with the USB.
