    I received my Topping D30 a couple of days ago and in the box I found a brochure with this....

    But in their website there is nothing mentioned.....

    Anyone here has an idea about that?

    Looks really awesome,
    Hope the price is as awesome as some of their other stuff.

    Interesting. I'll be keeping an eye out for this.

    Wow looks great. Could a a promising competitor to the current Jotunheimm/NFB-11 go to for entry level DAC/AMP combo.

    The brochure says that it was expected to be launched in December 2016, but probably the launch was postponed.
    For sure "on the paper" it looks interesting, but then we need to consider the SQ.
    For sure the higher level is very crowded of good competitors, so the battle is going to be fierce.

    So far from what I have read Topping has delivered in the SQ department with some very well built products with high quality component.

    I emailed Topping for more info, and this is their reply:
     
     
    Like the specs, but no new info.  I am guessing that there's going to be a pair of opamps feeding each TPA6120A2's.  Seeing what Topping has done recently, I'm speculating that they're going to be OPA2134's.  I wonder if they will be socketed for easy swap out.  I guess if not, I can always take a soldering iron to the PCB.

    They didn't tell you when it might come out?

    Nope. They are holding their cards close to their chests. Just for kicks, I searched for the DX7 on Taobao and AliExpress and came up with nothing.
     
  11. Jimster480
    Ah I see,
    They are probably still working on it, or they aren't ready for production yet. Especially if they are in need of quality facilities or they are trying to gather cash for a volume order of chips.

    I realise this is an old thread I'm resurrecting but any word on this thing yet? It's piqued my interest. I just asked Google-Sensei and he/she came up with Yamaha! LOL

    Nope but my friend is about to go to china and he will find out about it when hes there.

    As per what their website shows, they have a new amp for loudspeakers, but nothing about the DX7.
    I may contact the manufacturer directly and ask.

    The DX7 is available on AliExpress now for $399.99. I have one on the way but no ETA yet.
