I like the looks of it. A headphone amp with a built in dac, I am surprised more manufactures havent built them that way.Any idea of the cost?

I has to be big bucks.  Look at the build alone on it.  Beautiful

By aesthetics alone, it'd be rad with the T1.

wow, if it sounds half as good as it looks.  dig the wood panelling as well!  VERY PERTY!

The phono stage pictured with it is around $2500 so the amp might be reasonably priced,but it is entering a market saturated with amps.

It might be entering a saturated market, but it has something most amps dont, a built in dac. Even though some dacs do have headphone output. I wonder if they built the amp and inserted a dac or did they build a dac and insert an amp stage. I am just wondering what there priority was.

Wow.  I read the title and thought Rockford Fosgate was getting into headphone amps. eek.gif

PJ,

 

Thanks for pointing out the amp is on the left.  I thought it was the other one.  I would think it would be reasonably priced.  It is very nice looking.

I'm going to have to eat Ramen noodles for a year to afford this.

There is a very strong chance I will be buying one of those biggrin.gif

Am I the only one that got a Cylon vibe from that thing?
