I'm pretty sure they have decided to sell the unit separately. I know the market is saturated, but what if it is roughly on the level of the Audiophilleo unit but for way cheaper? By that I mean very low jitter (with measurements provided, not just speculated or claimed but with no numbers available), asynchronous operation, separate fixed frequency oscillators for 44.1K and 48K (and their multiples), 24/96 native support with 24/192 via custom drivers, galvanic isolation, etc. The more I learn about the many USB to SPDIF devices out there, the more I see that there are really only a few that I'd bother with: Audiophilleo, Halide Bridge, Analog Research Legato, and JKenny HiFace. All of these have some area which could be improved upon, including price in most cases.
I'm not Anedio and I don't know their final design; this is just speculation from what I've discussed with them. If they could do all of the above for significantly less than the $500 Audiophilleo 2 (for example) then I think it is worth doing.
Thanks for the info about vinyl rips. I'll have to look into them.
