Just got on a waiting list. Shipping looks like Valentine's day timeframe.

Any idea when it will be released in the U.S.?  Music Direct's website says "Coming Late January '11" but it's already February.  Audio Advisor said they don't have an estimate.

that's a funny company, there's no email address available on their website...the only form available is for the newsletter, and it's clearly stated that they delete any non-newsletter enquiry. I'm sorry to be interested in your product and have questions to ask, duh.

Everyone I've called has said 2 weeks. Just pre-ordered one from Audio Advisor. This is what I've been waiting for. Asynch, 2 clocks, no drivers, 24/96, <$200. (Thanks to Lee already have my usb isolator [which registers zip on the gauss-o-meter]) Here's the email if anyone is interested:

 

Hi Robin,

 

    We are taking pre-orders for the V-Link, which we expect to be VERY popular.  We will get them as soon or sooner than anyone else in the USA and expect them to be here within the next couple weeks.  We won't charge your card until your unit ships if you would like to order now.  You can call me on my personal toll-free direct at 866.984.0676 if you would like to place an order or have any other questions.  This relatively inexpensive unit can make a big upgrade to USB digital music!

 

Regards,

 

Tim Hahn

Cheap-looking RCA output.  No BNC?

 

Anyone with impressions yet?

Mine should arrive FedEx this afternoon. I'll give some initial impressions tomorrow

It'd be great if you could try to pass-through AC3/DTS, and some shots of the inside would be super sweeet.

"the evil J from outer space"[:sister:1] ...but I don't see how they can output a jitter-free(as if such thing existed) S/PDIF signal when using the dirty computer power. And when I see what's in their DAC's, I remain dubious until proven otherwise: http://www.ippinkan.com/m1_dac_musicalfidelity.htm

 

and they use a single clock for 44.1 and 48kHz multiples...if it can pass-through AC3/DTS, a friend of mine might pull the trigger and I'll get to try it.
