Thank you for the detail rich review and putting your opinion out there .
Agree that the website is good, easy to navigate .
Really sad this is available to US only.
Looking at your profile it is obvious you like variety and no doubt have gained much experience from comparing .
I get constant hassles about gear not being used, taking up space and "gathering dust."
I have always justified a purchase along the improvement lines, then moving on , spending all my time with the "better " component.
I understand different rigs, portable , main rig and bedroom rigs. Having a few top tier Headphones for suiting genres also makes sense .
You say this unit equals your MBL and Luxman units but not altogether . Would you not say this is a sideways or slightly backward move as you have a top reference already.
A lot of action happening around the new ESS chip and I guess we consumers are keen to find the best application for this chip.
What would be immensely useful to me and others would be a comparison of this dac to the latest ESS containing dacs. If you think this dac outclasses a Weiss 202 it would be very current and move me to get an Anedio by hook or crook.
Don't read me as being critical of you when I urge you to review forward rather than backward technologically speaking in this upper segment, you have a great writing style and I value your opinion . I will most certainly refer back to this review when I choose from the imminent offerings. You could just add the comparos to this thread and that would be cool .
