I actually have to disagree - just heard from Violectric about the upcoming V220 and V281 amps, and Fried Reim states the designs are complete. Moving on to production, and want them to be ready for showing at HiEnd Munich in May. Shipping date will be June.
The optional DAC add-ons are a part of these new models, and there was mention of the "newly designed" 24/192 version as well as the more basic 24/96 choice. If Fried is saying "the design is complete" then I take that to mean the new USB section is also done. Maybe an email to him is in order, for clarification.
