Anybody checked this out yet? As a former Paradisea owner I'd be curious to hear how it compares.

I currently own a Paradisea+ and if it's a definite upgrade, then I'd certainly want to get one too :)

I think they're great little units.

At roughly 40% more I would like to think it is.

I had a Dialogue II quite a while back, one of the things that bugged me about it was it was very noisy, I wonder if he's fixed that with these newer DAC's.

Wow, so this is cool. Gotta say I kinda miss the all acrylic look, but the metal looks nice too.

I wonder if this is targeted as an upgrade over the Paradisea.
If it is, I may just have to get myself one to compare.

Thanks for the info Turn&Cough

Please do


I wish there was more info actually about how these are designed and especially whether the USB interface has been updated.

Haha, even if I did get it I wouldn't be able to tell you those things.
I can only say how I think it sounds.

I do want to purchase it.

The concept of leaving out op-amp and using tube buffer in DAC is just what I am looking for. But I balk at the 900 price tag.

I have asked to purchase one when they have it ready. The Havana is targeted as an upgrade over the Paradisea+, so I am very interested to compare it with my Paradisea (because I absolutely love my Paradisea+). This should be a very nice comparison.

Boy, I wonder what the
Havana > Woo WA5-LE > headphone
setup would sound like.

So do I.
Does anybody out there need a kidney? I'll let you have one of mine for a grand.

It seems that the Havana has arrived at my home. I get home tomorrow. This should be a fun week!

I'm very excited.
