from what I 've read so far, the new "micro" will outperform his "little" brother (dsd nano)...
its just better in every aspect...I didn't know about the micro..only heard about the new Mini...feeling sad here about my decision,...
anyway...can someone explain the differences in the dac, between the "nano" vs "micro" ?...
the micro has a dual core bb chip...what are the advantages?
if you just bought it, many dealers usually have return periods. can you return it?

yes, the micro will be "better," but at more than double the cost. the micro will be around $500. the nano is substantially cheaper, but with a lot of features in a small package.
the micro is also battery powered, so is portable as well, though obviously not as small as the nano.
dual core chips might help reduce the S/N ratio and just provide better performance than a single chip.
the micro will have multiple digital inputs (coax, optical, usb), xbass, and crossfeed...and will have a 1/4" headphone jack. much more feature-rich than the nano, so it might be more useful if you spend a lot of time at the desk as well.
