The Shipping date is estimated to be around 11/20th. The Date is subjected to change, because Ibasso is very busy. Official date will be confirmed by Ibasso once the preorder is closed and finalized. But we are all so much into our Enthusiasm, so Ibasso agreed to make this 1 time deal for FAN-EDITION! We will have @icefalkon @edwardsean@EggofSound and other members to thanks as well.
