I just hope that Mike Moffat, will perfectly align each molecule in all the components using his Absolute Zero containment suit.
On a more serious note though I don't mean to pick a fight but I really wouldn't want their DAC built like someone elses. I want their DAC, not a cheaper version of Wyred4sound's DAC. Theta has always made some killer stuff, and I would really love to see what could be done on a more obtainable budget. I don't own any of their amps yet but I spent some good time on my friends Lyr, and I think its a wonderful amp, and even better for the money.
I had the THETA Ds Pre Gen III since 1990 updated twice from the I to the II then to the III by Mike way back in the day when he started Theta. In fact it was one of the first of the production runs for his DACs. I think the price then was 3K. It was to some an absolutely insane price to pay for what was then one of the first stand alone DACs but it grabbed my ears and I just couldn't let go and insisted on buying the stores floor demo at Mamaroneck Hi FI. It was still working when I sold it just a few months ago. I purchased a Wyred4Sound DAC-2 just past it's 200th hour now. The Ds Pre had a preamp in it which as nice, it was no match for my Classe Pre amp but could have done the job in most cases.
