    -Price: 7995£

    -Digital integrated Pre-Amp

    -Digital Head AMP: 6V / 0,5A = 1200mW @ 33Ohms 0,000015% distortion

    -Remote controlled

    -WTA filtering with a new world record at 164.000 taps with 166 separate DSP cores
    (Hugo got a rating on 26000 taps)

    -DSD 768

    -Balanced XLR

    -Two Toslink

    - Four Coax S-Pdif

    - Two high speed COAX outputs for future use.

    - Worlds best DAC and are capable of outpreforme the best analog according to Chord.

    - Isolated USB and can not be powerd trough a Iphone/Ipad , because it need power.
    Maybe someone can create a battery powered USB cable?
