I should have a D7 by the middle or so of next week. Looking forward. With the outputs, it should be an interesting addition to powering a desktop amp or my fi.Q. :^)

Looking forward to your impressions and review! It must be a good dac/amp combo for starters and people "on the go" who travel a lot.

Hmm I were hoping for something a little more high-end but who knows perhaps it sounds good.
 

I guess June, 2012 must seem like a long way away, but people have waited longer for their Singlepower amp to arrive ....
 
Desktop DAC:
A 4*ES9018 DAC is under development. The estimated release date is June, 2012.

I have a feeling that with what was learned from the D6, which is good, that the D7 will be better or they would not have produced it. I will find out.

D6 price is $275 and D7 $179. Apparently they aren't in the same league with $100 difference. Thing I hope for that D7 must be an exceptionally good product for its price.

Yes, you are right. Well I will find out.

I need something like this, but I think I'll pick up the iBasso D-Zero.  It has a charging system and it is really cheap.  I'd like to have 24/196, but I think things are evolving and I can get something like that in a year. The Zero will always be useful since it is a true portable.  Right now I need to have something with this laptop in order to listen to MOG, cause the built-in amp/dac is plain and simple bad.

Lol perhaps highend was not the right word, but I would at least have liked to see the use of WM8741 instead of the 40.

I'm super mad that they killed the use of the ess9018. I've been looking for a cheap implementation of this chip for a long time now. ill take an ess9016 if I can't get an ess9018. the ess902x series are not in the same class as the 901x series. again my hopes are dashed.

Would this be a decent fit as a DAC for a Schiit Asgard?  Does the volume control the preamp outs?

Thanks.  I'm hoping this would be a good desktop solution with the Schiit Asgard until I get the Schiit Bifrost.  Seems like a pretty solid DAC.

I wonder if the iPad CCK will be able to drive the D7? Probably not if there is no battery in the D7?

If the USB receiver on D7 is compatible with CCK for iPad then all you will need is a powered usb hub to make it work.

That would be a great option for the desktop but not for the road. I just discovered the CCK so now I am looking for a battery driven DAC(+maybe AMP).
