Gilmore X2 - coming......soon? with optional 24/96 Asynchronous USB DAC - Page 11

post #151 of 154
Come on, nobody is expecting anything by now ... it's just fun to pick on the guy, I mean he named it, he touted it as the next best thing, people started waiting for it ... some even sold their Lites and GS1's. A year ago I even told somebody to wait for it and get the Burson 160D and this then return the one he likes less ... maybe he's still waiting. smily_headphones1.gif

What's funny is now that the GS1 is EOL too, unless he plans to build BHSE's for the rest of his life, and I can see why he would ... my guess is the X2 or maybe the X3 is almost ready. Two years max. smily_headphones1.gif

Well, he might have a hard time to get some of the parts, let's hope that those company are still making them.

not at this time. i may consider bringing it back as some kind of limited edition resurrection of the Gilmore Lite.  The parts used in this design have just become too valuable.  They have now been discontinued for several years, and i have a finite supply.  There are no equivalent parts being made and most that are for sale in quantity are counterfeits from China
