When it lays flat the volume knob is touching the surface. Hopefully​ that's an OLED screen i see.
If yes you can raise or lower the volume by spinning the unit left or right. Looks nice and you think of everything to ask.

The more products the more questions to ask.The market is oversaturated and apart from couple companies i haven't seen any revolutionary design.

5 months later and a new model is coming out? I sense a lot of disgruntled consumers on the horizon

I will still using Opus flagship #2, this new model is meant between #1 and #2, so I see myself not getting a downgrade.
I believe this model is more for those who don't have a high end dap but don't wanna spend so much for the flagship model or for those who wanna upgrade from their #1.

It's a lower end model compared to the Opus #2 so I am not sure if those having the Opus #2 would want to change to this.
 
It seems to be using the old PCM1792A chip.

To me this DAC is superior than 2 mobile sabre chips in #2 )
 
Any idea of its connectivity features? Optical out? OTG? Need a good transport for my Vantam.

Most important is the implementation, but I do believe using Burr Brown have warmer sound signature.
Most probably, Opus #3 does not have OTG and more likely to have optical out like the #1 and #2.

I have PCM1795 in my Vantam - can not call it warm (not even close to AKM warm sounding chips) but not that cold as majority of ESS chips) 
You're right, implementation is the key!
