Great! I can't wait to see what you thought of the Concero vs. the Uberfied Bitfrost. Did your roommate get the regular Concero (which uses the ESS Sabre 9023 chip) or the Concero HD/HP (which uses the ESS 9018 chip)?
Also, I was comparing the brand new price of all the 3 DACs, Peachtree is now only going for $399 new, while the Uber Bitfrost is going for $519 new while the Concero is going for $599 new.
Even in the used market, the Peachtree cannot go for more than $399 as that will make it more expensive than a new unit. I would expect a mint DAC-ITx to go for around $300 while the older DAC-IT (not 24/192 capable) to be going for around the $200 range. That will still put the Peachtree to be quite a bit below Schiit or Resonance Labs.
