burnspbesq - good call on the early order! It takes guts to make a blind buy like that. Then again, I think Resonessence has proven their pedigree well enough to where you can be fairly sure of the quality of Concero.
It will be interesting to hear more about it from RMAF reports. They say it uses a 2 channel ESS Sabre DAC, so it can't be the ES9018. I wonder if it is the ES9012 which is also in the "Reference" line, positioned as the stereo version of the ES9018? Or it could also be the ES9023 as used in several popular units like the ODAC and PeachTree DAC-iT.
In case anyone missed them, here are some pics of the new Concero:
Do you folks think I should make a new thread for this? Or just continue discussion in this one?
