    The intial MD drops were definitely sent everywhere which quite a few outside the US also missed though as stated, the last few have not been everywhere for various reasons.

    Hope this makes sense.

    There were only 3 drops, I think.

    At least five I can recall, including the original with a shipping wait of six months or so. The second drop, which was open for two-three weeks IIRC, had it in stock for next day shipping. The next drop, also with next day shipping, was open for around a day just before Christmas (I got mine in this drop). There have been at least two drops since that were open only for hours or less.

    I think Marlowe is correct as I got mine around the Christmas drop last year and I think there are at least one drop before that one.

    Drop support told me that the last one ended on 18/4 so were looking at 2-3 months for the next, well my money is waiting anxiously for then because im not paying £700 for a used one on ebay right now.

    Sorry, a silly question (and one I could answer for myself with a 10 minute experiment)... Can I connect a single ended DAC output via RCA cables to the 789, and still use the balanced output of the 789? I do have a balanced DAC (DX7S), but would like to try a Schiit Loki in the chain while still driving out of the balanced headphone output on the 789...

    Any significant downside of losing the balanced input to the 789?

    Yes, most people also suggest the best performance this way with the 789 specifically.

    Seems that this delivery is delayed, to bad, I was expecting to get my unit now in May.

  13. You know if the Atom had a nice upgrade/metal option I never would have bought one of these.
