looking forward to a direct comparison of all three! I really liked my ud100v2 when I had it. was about to get the new ud120, but holding off as there seems to be quite a few new products coming out of Stoner Acoustics. wondering how this new product compares.

Mine just arrived as well. The cute factor is high with this one. Sound is very good, too. I will wait to review this unit until I get some hours on it. Caps need to charge and form. I have compared the Ruby to a RS Shadow and there are some subtle differences but it would be unfair to make judgement now. Associated equipment includes: Mac Book Pro--USB out to a UD-120. The UD 120 is powered by a 12v, 15ah SLA battery supplying a 5v power supply card for the UD-120. This stable DC power for the DAC does very nice things for the overall sound. Output then goes to the Ruby. I'm using Heir Audio 4ai IEMs. Toxic Cables Silver Poison cables round out the setup. Will try to supply pictures soon.

With reference to the above quote - Please let me how you set it up SLA battery supplying a 5v power supply card  or brought it?
