Certainly looks affordable rolleyes.gif. I don't see a price on their site. What are they asking for it?

Not sure yet, but it will certainly be in the very expensive range.

Hopefully we will see a confirmed price soon :-)

If the Zodiac Gold is already about 3k+ then maybe, $5K-7K?

 

Soon they'll have a separate power supply unit for an extra $1K too.

 

Looks sexy though.

At CanJam@RMAF 2011, Marcel James said it'd likely be around $10k.

 

Edit: Honestly, I'm not a fan of the look.

Looks nice enough, I just wish they would publish something beyond over processed/unrealistic renderings. But 10K? Way out of my means.

This Monster Looks more like an Aardvark rather then an Antelope :) I hope it sounds better then it looks!

Did you make that statement knowing Igor Levin's background or do you actually think it resembles an Aardvark?

The fact that you ask this question suggest that you can somehow imagine the resemblance to an Aardvark, interesting!

I was thinking I am the only one!, Actually you are correct in both assumptions.

I really dislike the look...The fact it only has 1 Balanced in is odd to me as well for 10k. Though I suppose there are other high end press like that as well...

It looks like a DAC you'd find in Bioshock.
