This is the link to the player, and no I don't work for Roland.

Optical out and it runs on AA batteries! Very impressive. Now if only at accepted SDHC which go up to 32 GB. It supports a maximum 2GB standard SD.

Nice first post, mate. And---by the looks of it I don't have to, but must---give you the traditional Head-Fi welcome: "sorry about your wallet".

Seriously, nice catch on that one, we'll have to have a look at one of those .

It seems you missed this, it seems that as of Nov. 2006 a firmware update allows for SDHC.

Morphsci,

The new '07 HeadRoom Portable Desktop Amps have indeed begun shipping as of last week.... Our initial production batch of these units has just sold-out; we expect to have another small run of Portable Desktops coming off the line here in about another 6-9 business days -- IF all goes well!

I will hazard to say we have a back-order 'waiting list' starting to build for these lovelies!

I didn't realize the preorder queue was that deep. Any way to get an estimate of how long we are talking here? Thanks.

Ordered the new Archos 605 WiFi w/ the DVR dock. The DVR dock is supposed to allow S/PDIF output for this unit, which will be uber sweet when it's connected to the HeadRoom Desktop Portable!

I'll post my thoughts when it gets here.
