that is very interesting. thanks for the info...i think it pleases most people here that you actually took some of our suggestions and implemented it into the micro. in other words, you actually do listen - it's not just lip service. and thorsten and his crew are smart enough to make it all work...very cool indeed. very excited to see the release of this product (and to actually get one!)!
Prior to this Crowd-Design idea, we already rec'd a few feedback emails from our distributors and from customers direct. They gave us an initial idea of what people wanted to see and this set us on the path to getting the micro iDSD developed through customer feedback via Crowd-Design. The SPDIF input was the most popular feature requested - as per the earlier pie chart.
We have really high hopes for it. In Japan in particular, we know Sony and JVC and Denon are all out to knock us off our #1 perch.
So hopefully with a bit of luck and lots of customer input the micro iDSD will be even more spectacular than the nano iDSD!
