    I am in the market for a pair too. :grin:

    BTW, Alvin of Vinshine told me he had stroke a deal with the manufacturer so he can provide a better price than that of ebay. You can contact him directly if you want to 'negotiate'. :grinning:

    Cool. Thanks for that.
    How about this price? :)
    I just purchased.
  3. Mr Pluto
    Yep incl. shipping to Europe (DHL 1-week) it`s over $100 cheaper than the one offered in eBay. The china-man in eBay estimates a shipping time at least a month to EU [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    :grin:Can negotiate? Ok i keep that in mind. I dun think he can go lower then his launch price at around US$630 but i will try.
  7. soundfanz
    Did you not see my post and link on previous page? No negotiation necessary I think, you can purchase it for US $598
  8. lukeap69

    It is already 598USD now (plus shipping of course...) :)
  9. slex
    Ares at US$598 including shipping. Boy this dac is so aggressively price. It already knock off Bimmby at its pricing not to mention it a fully balance dac.
  10. slex
    Now im asking whether the extra pair of optical and coxial of Ares can be convert to i2S. Even the mimby can be coverted:grinning:
  11. lukeap69

    Apologies, 598USD does not include shipping. Sorry for my poor English. :grinning:
  12. slex
    Still $1 cheaper then bimby at $599:grinning:. I still hoping theres an option to convert one or two of the inputs to i2S.

    Just like audio-gd range of dac with several options to convert.
  13. lukeap69

    Even 1 BNC input would make me happy. :grin:
  14. slex
    My dealer just told me cannot be converted to i2S from his supplier. Look like the USB is the dominant interface which provide the highest resolutions including DSD. Well, i have the not so uber USB chain ready for it.

    This history changed very quickly ))
