What the world has been waiting for, monoblock dacs. Designers with more parts bins than brains.
this price tag is crazy . I think iriver really overestimated what audiophiles are willing to pay for what I expect to be marginal improvements in portable audio.
Here's to hoping that this thing is as good as its price
...I could see this being the next Ultrasone Edition 10 though
hifi-world.co.uk basically says it is pretty close to being completely awesome, but they didn't use a range of earphones to put it through the paces. I would buy one, but I'm pretty sure that would qualify as grounds for divorce in Vietnam. That is a thing of beauty, but with such a high price tag, it has buyer's remorse written all over it.
