Sometime it makes me wonder if lack of ZX2 power was part of marketing to push sales of their pha series amps. I noticed that during ZX2 introduction Sony reps always had it paired up with an external amp to demonstrate its sonic capability.
The only problem with the ZX2 PHA amp pairing is when you use them together the battery life on the ZX2 drops to around 8 hours to match the approximate battery length of the PHA amps.  Kind of defeats the purpose of having a 20+ hour DAP.  Sony's LO implementation sucks with the idiotic WM-Port and even the tiny Chinese DAP makers do a better job.
 
Sony builds low powered DAP's and then cripples them with a lame LO implementation.  Brilliant move Sony

We are working on it. We are very close now.
I've been holding out Paul... Still going with the ES9028pro? Are or you going with the 9038?
Either way you've garnered some excitement! Now it's time to feed us some tidbits. :wink: Price? Coming before 2017?

Guys, I understand the want for this product, im sure its going to be great, but seriously, it's done when it's done. Paul im sure wants it to market asap but it seems as though he won't let it go out until he knows its a quality product with minimal downsides... absolutely fair enough.

I remember years back, I nagged my mother so much about when my dinner was ready she slammed a plate of half cooked dinner on the table... I never once questioned how long dinner would be again lol. 20 minutes later the rest of my family enjoyed theirs, lesson learned, it is what it is and it will be done when it is done.... lol

I like the idea of the Chinese Calendar .
I also don't see what's wrong with asking questions about a release after close to a year from the announcement date. Paul seems fine about obliging us with what he can answer so why are some people feeling the need to silence those who may have some questions? It's not like it's been just a few months... it's been a YEAR!
IMO it shows we still have interest in the product and if anything IBASSO is probably appreciative that people are still interested.

The ES9038 has not been released. The specifications have been but not the chip. The ES9028 is what we are using and it does an excellent job.

Perhaps you can send me a demo/test unit?
 I'm sure it'll be wonderful.

Yes I second what is said above, if you want a beta tester, conveniently located in China and that can compare it to the Lotoo Paw Gold and Sony WM1Z, as well as the Mojo, don't hesitate to send me a test unit :D
