Here are my early impressions of the Megamini. A more detailed review with pictures will follow. Cool to the touch, indicative of a solid aluminum construction Smooth 3.5mm jack insertion Tactile buttons Attractive metal finish Nice screen Animations could use a little work, as they are not currently at a constant frame rate Shutdown animation is at a much lower FPS than the startup animation Album art displayed well, color comes through nicely Powers sensitive IEMs well Analytic upper end, yields noticeable improvement over my 9018 SPDIF DAC Overall, I am really enjoying using the Megamini. If the UI was about 10ms more responsive I'd have no complaints. I'm sure that Hifiman will figure it out, given the pre-release nature of the current firmware.
