Me too =)
Current batch is still due to ship out in the first week of March. Unfortunately, it is already completely sold out, so new orders will have at least a 6-8 week wait. Sorry!
I've just popped out an email to everyone who has placed an order explaining that amplifiers should start shipping from March 12th onwards. There have been some pretty bad delays with the assembly chaps but they have assured me that they are nearly done. My apologies again for the delays. I wish I were able to keep this things in stock but they are selling out faster than we can build them!
It would indeed be possible to return an EHP-O2 back to get the DAC fitted.
I can confirm that I am in discussion with NwAvGuy and his partner to sell the DACs.
As for the current batch, there are some stragglers going in the post today. Only 1 person has yet to pay up, which is quite good.
A few more sent off today :)
Remember to click 'own it' and maybe add a short review at:
Oliver, can anything be done with the hideous 'clipping' sound that kicks in as the battery runs out ? I have never heard an amp degrade so abruptly and unpleasantly (its louder than the music which preceeded it) - I know its not just my EHP-02 as this has been mentioned from the earliest reviews of the Objective2. Its definitely a design fault, and I am forced to run my amp from the wallwart. It has colored my otherwise favorable impressions of the amp.
