Will update this thread from time to time when new DAPs are announced / leaked. Lotoo PAW Gold Highlights: DSD support 22wh battery USB 3.0 High precision clock Powerful amp (500mW @ 32Ω per channel) Parametric EQ Sapphire glass 24k-gold plated controls Release date: unknown Claimed by the manufacturer to be a 'reference grade' player (and despite the hideous looks), this thing is gonna cost an arm and a leg (think USD $2000 level). It's funny because Lotoo was a audio recorder manufacturer and virtually unknown in the head-fi community, and now they want to compete with iRiver... P.S.: An interesting tidbit about Lotoo： A while ago HIFIMAN claimed Lotoo copied one of the original designs of the HM901 for one of the products (not this PAW Gold I think). You can read more about this here (Chinese only).

According to this review of an engineering sample, the sound is decent but the device suffers from crappy UI. It costs RMB 999 and is available in China now.

Musiland Monitor 04/06 MX The latest USB DAC/amp combos from Musiland that double as DAPs Both 04 and 06 support PCM up to 32/384 (WAV, FLAC, APE, MP3) and DSD. An interesting feature found on them is a new digital audio transfer protocol called MULINK (developed by Musiland, I suppose. More info here) that is capable of transferring native DSD64 and DSD128 to other MULINK-enabled devices. The 06 MX uses PCM1798 for D/A conversion while the 04 MX has a PCM5102A.
