    Noticed this from the new company of the former CTO at Radsone.

    Target retail price is $99.

    Estimated launch time is early next year (January - February).

    Needless to say I'm hyped :wink:

    Hopefully they have the same customer engagement as Radsone

    That looks mighty fine. Hopefully they will have a stellar app like the Radsone. Although it says onboard built in EQ and DSP? Which, is exciting.

    I hope it is well built as that is my only concern regarding the ES100

    Wish they had designed it with balanced OPA1622 amplifiers, to provide the higher voltage output on the 2.5mm TRRS jack - rather than relying on the lower voltage, direct output from the AK4377 DAC chip.

    I am fine with similar Build Quality to the ES100. (Still have mine from Kickstarter. Looks new.) But better build quality and durability of buttons is always a good thing.

    I guess that the extra OPA1622's might have required a bigger battery? (And resulting weight size...) Will be interesting to see how the OPA SE sounds compared to the Balanced from the AK chip.

    Like the better Bluetooth Antenna. Think that's a problem with many receivers and wireless iems, and with some DAP's.

    Happy to see that this is still a small size, and probably weight. Last think I'd want is a Bluetooth Receiver as big and heavy as a DAP. It's tough to balance size, weight, battery life with everyone's wish list.

    From Specs the 5K looks Great ! (Aside from the name reminding me I should run more...)

    Thanks for starting this thread. I'm keeping my eye out for this. I think I like the design layout better than the ES100. Just hope the build quality and EQ will be as good, or better.

    Really excited for it. Gonna have to curb my desire to get any other DAC while waiting for it to come out. 100 bux range is really getting quite competitive now.
