    Completely agree, $100 is an absolute steal.

    I talked at length with the guys there, the retail isn't fixed yet as they have not completed their tuning and software tests. Its approximately 3 months away from official release.
    They say that the targeted price range,is around US$600/-, but no fixed pricing yet. But considering its additional BT 5.0 and ESS9038PRO over the DX7s, its probably within reasonable reference points of price.

    They are going in right direction, and always satisfying.

    Currently trying Microsoft Surface Pro 4 > iFi iDefender > DX7s USB in > DX7s coax out > iFi S/PDIF iPurifier > DX7s coax in > Massdrop THX AAA 789 > XLR DUM cable > MrSpeakers Ether Flow 1.1. Switching between USB input and coax input. I'm liking coax better in this configuration. The bass is tighter, instruments sound more natural, transients more compelling, everything flows a bit better.
    I briefly removed the iFi S/PDIF iPurifier from the chain (DX7s coax out > DX7s coax in) and then I don't hear a difference between USB and coax input anymore.

    Just another couple of points regarding the DX7 Pro. They have removed the SPDIF input because it seems not many people are using it nowadays and it's also limited to 192kbps. Secondly, one of the main factors for the 3-month delay is because they are working with Sony to get LDAC implemented. BT 5.0 with LDAC support and all in a smaller form factor. Hello! :grinning:

    *S/PDIF output, the input is still there. From the Head-Fi video:

    I already have DX7S/THX789, DX3PRO, and D50/JDS Atom as my desktop stacks... Will be interesting to read about the objective and subjective views to see if it is worth replacing one or more of my current stacks to get the DX7PRO... It is absolutely amazing what can be had these days... problem is that we may have hit the point of diminishing marginal returns until some really cool new technology comes out that completely changes the listening experience...

    Did someone both heard the dx7 pro and the matrix element M at canjam? Which one is better? Thanks!

    They were both excellent sounding but I would be lying if I said I could hear a discernible difference there and then.
