mk2?  Would this a entire different DAC or an upgrade to the current DP-777?  I will not sacrifice y classic DAC for any upgrades or mk2s.  I'm really liking this classic DAC.

From what I was told it was a revision and they are unsure if they will be able to upgrade existing MK 1's.

That's some BS

They did say that they try and keep a certain pedigree that is nothing ever goes obsolete. They always try and figure out a way to take care of their customers. Whether they can do it with the MK2 that is unknown. I'm not that worried, honestly this DP-777 is special especially at the price I bought mine for.

And especially at the price you will sell me yours for!

Also, to those owners that have tried the iUSB from iFi, what improvements am I too hear? I've read on CA and various other sites that it will improve the USB connection especially if you are using an ordinary desktop or laptop and not a dedicated music server or transport.

@Greed
I would like to hear your thoughts on the DP -777 vs the Analog Dac. Thanks.

I have compared an audioquest forest cable direct vs ifi Gemini cable direct vs both cables with iUSB for the Dp-777. While all 3 sounded different with the iUSB combi sounding the smoothest, whether the sound is the best will depend on individual ear I feel. I believe if you already have a capable usb cable, I wouldn't worry too much whether to get the iUSB. After all, the DP-777 is not tapping on the dirty usb power from your computer, so on paper, iUSB should not impact much. The DA&T AC filter I recently tried for the power cord to my computer gave me a more obvious and better result compared to the iUSB in the chain.

I got the iUSB Gemini cable and the Mercury cable all at the same time.  So I'm not sure howit sounds without it.  I'll do some testing.

So the iUSB just makes the sound more smooth and non-fatiguing? Do sense any detail lost? I'm also tweaking gear that I know I'm going to keep for awhile. The AMR is one of the pieces. It has simply wow'd me, I can finally be at rest in regards to DACs.

Compare plugging the Gemini cable direct which gave a slightly aggressive with more digital edge, yes, with the iusb, the sound is smoother. Whether there is a loss of details, I think Preproman probably can give a fairer judgment since his system is more transparent than my current setup.
