I recently shot an email to Anedio about future plans, so I'll post here if I get any info. I do recall they were planning for an eventual D3 version, which they realized would have to support DSD. But I don't know where it stands. They were really focusing most on their speaker amp, to replace the somewhat short lived A1. If it comes to fruition it will be a beast, fully discrete with some unique design aspects. 

Thanks.  Please do keep us updated.

I'm setting the D2 to full volume and using -12 pregain on the amp. 12 o'clock is about as high as I can crank the V281's volume when I'm listening to my headphones. What does the click at 80-81 on the D2's volume pot signify?

I believe that's the crossover point between digital volume control and the relay attenuator. See this review of the original D1 where the designer mentions it in depth.

 

So when you are at 81, you still haven't even applied any digital attenuation at all. And when you go below that you don't throw out bits until the volume drops rather low, thanks to the 32-bit design of the ES9018. So feel free to run it down to 70 or 60 if it allows for more range of motion on the V281 knob. Although honestly it probably won't make much difference either way.

Thanks for that. Very helpful.

I love this DAC. It's miles ahead of anything I've owned previously. The review you linked there describes the sound accurately - even though he's reviewing the D1.
