Yes, this is exactly why we decided to include an OLED screen.

We actually love buttons too! But to increase & decrease the 3 different settings, it would require 2 x 3 = 6 buttons + 1 power button + 1 SVT on/off button = 8 buttons/switches! Having that many buttons significantly drives price up not only b/c of the buttons themselves, but also increases the complexity (and therefore cost) of the enclosure. So using the multifunction switch w/the OLED display actually helps keep the cost down. :-)

When you put it that way it makes perfect sense with the display. :p

$179 will be just about right. And hopefully some kind of metal/steel enclosure this time.

I agree with the 250$ price point.

If the company frankly says that the zo3 will cost more, you have gotta know that it will cost more... A noticable amount more...

$250!? Please no more, i want one too :eek:

lol, but really, i want one, but for $250? Hmmm

$150 +/- $20 will be an ideal price IMO. It will have to be serious good to be $200 or beyond, given some of the best valued amp/DAC are right on this price bucket.

That's a more than reasonable answer and not one I expected.  Multifunction it is.

I agree that a 250$ price point is way too high. <= 180$ is about what i would pay for a new one.

You just said you agree with the $250 price?
post #58 of 579

More than $1! 

 

nah... I will take it at around $199.99?

post #59 of 579

159 - $179 would be a good range, $199 tops. Reason: JDSLabs C5 @ $179. :D It also is still an up to 300 ohms headphones supporting amp. Furthermore digiZoid doesn't have that kind of reputation as far as high quality sound goes yet, so it may be hard to get it sold over $200 for that reason as to the more "serious" hobbyists may get caught in the "gimmick" imagination of it and neither do they have the gold marketing, ala rappercan starting with a B.... team. Having said that, ZO3 would be a very easy product to market. :) It's a fresh new product that is a bit different than the other products in this business. If digiZoid play this one right they should be doing quite some nice sales.

More youtube vids around the developing/product and technology talk would be a good start, it's free. Also they should contact Innerfidelity and various reviewers. This is an interesting product to review due to its features and the name digiZoid is still very new in this game.

But the bottomline is, digiZoid still has to price it according to the components used and we don't know the exact components so obviously it's hard for outsiders to price it. :p
