Rudi has always come across as quite sane... still.

Guys, if Rudi really likes it enough to buy it, I will be sure to demo this thoroughly. He is honest and tells it likes he hears it. That counts for something even in head-fi

Are they reliable? Maybe they wanted to be first and this price is safe option for them. This is nothing new in Europe. I'm petty sure that official presetation was planned for today.

It does look expensive as hell, for better or worse. I don't mind the price. Can I afford it? No, but it doesn't bother me at all. Some toys are more expensive than others. 

Looks easily pocketable (the angles make it look bulkier than it is. The DAC chip is a very good one that won't hold it back but until it shows nobody knows what it actually sounds like.
