Well there are a few ways to think about it:
1. I'm screwed as I'm a sucker and can't prevent myself from buying something that I feel would screw me over.
2. I know I want the balanced amp but can't wait to purchase it NOW with the standard amp. It's just an early adopter premium.
3. Assuming balanced board is extra $250 bringing the total to $1,249 I am buying the best sounding all-in-one DAP for $1,249. OH btw, I'm getting a free extra std board just to fool around with my other really low impedance or extra sensitive IEMs.
On the other 901 thread kenz just got happily screwed and find the std board already sounded better than his dx100+rx mk3 combo....
And we aren't even sure if international distributors didn't have a choice on combo offering. As least the Japanese ones have and did offered. Best is to get your usual retailer to get you the combo you wanted if you are at all interested in buying and not getting screwed.
