Disclaimer: All questions of pricing, features, release date, etc. should be directed to iFi. What follows is strictly my thoughts and opinions.
I wouldn't panic just yet. Product is still in prototype/development stages. Therefore, I wouldn't be too concerned yet about the price.
But as far as performance is concerned, and speaking of the Mytek price range, I believe the Mini will definitely be playing in that performance league. So, yes, iFi could charge that kind of money and still be price/performance competitive in the market.
But again, let's wait a bit before getting too worried about price. As for me, the mini series will likely be my last purchase for quite a long time, when it comes to DAC's...
