For a few of us no LO, no Coax out or no EQ is going to be a deal breaker. I admit that I thought about it quite a bit but because I rarely use those except for LO if the amp section is not as its best, I still find it a go. It's definitively something to think about. Couple of things I am definitely worried about are the warranty because of durability and suceptibility to failure and the SQ because we have no point of reference yet.
I was thinking about this DAP, but for me, no line out and no coax out is a dead end as I like to use my fi.Q at home and like the option of using something like the Hugo or whatever else comes down the pike. It is too easy these days to have digital out via a coax or optical and a line out is also nice. I imagine it is pretty crowded inside the Calyx M but but that isn't my problem. Now days, I think having a digital and LO is a minimum and especially at the final price of a 1000 dollars. After all, there are players costing near 200$ that have it.
