Quote: I marked your words! Hope turned into trust. I remember I asked the very same question in June to Analog Design Labs and they too said in a few months which was rather vague. I seriously do hope they would make it before the end of this year so I can order. In the meanwhile I am waiting for my Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV to arrive and I too hope it pairs well with the Svetlana 2. Looking forward to your detailed impressions. If you could keep in mind I'm also a D1 owner so I hope you can also test it in this setup: D1 > Svetlana 2 > W1000X. And the difference when used directly from the D1 headphone out.
