I think you guys are being way to nitpicky about the iDSD Pro. Remember, this is a DAC, first, which just so happens to have the ability to listen with headphones. They've already packed this thing to the gills with features, as a DAC. For the headphone crowd, it's not as if they're going to be able to fit something with as many features into the DAC as they do their dedicated headphone amp. Also the DAC, itself, is only $2500 USD. I haven't heard the iDSD Pro, but in theory, that's a bargain in the hi-fi world.
