I have finalized the tour reviewer list as follows (in sequence) :

Dillan - TN
MWSVette - FL
fjrabon - GA
Analog24 - GA
yage - VA
sahmen - MA
Trogdor - NJ

I didn't plan for it but this turn out to be a East coast tour. :D

We have received 12 signup within 2 weeks, the respond has exceeded our expectation and we are grateful for all the attention we have in the tour. Unfortunately we have one set of iDAC-6 and iHA-6 to circulate around, we have to turn down a few applications in order to maintain the efficiency of the tour. Sorry for unable to include everyone into the tour, I shall PM everyone in next two days to clarify the final arrangement. We just finished the Hong Kong High End Audio Visual Show (5-7 August), and is recovering after the show, will get back on course ASAP.

Just to keep everyone updated.

The tour has completed two sessions already, and fjrabon received the Cayin combo on 1 September. He shall bring the combo to the Atlanta Fall HeadFi meet. The forth reviewer in the tour Analog24 is also an Atlanta HeadFi member, so they can hang over the stack in person.

Base on the current schedule, Analog24 will send the Cayin stack to yage on 15th September 2016.

Update on the Tour progress.

sahmen has received the iDAC-6/iHA-6 combo on 19 October 2017, and he should be sending the package to Trogdor on 27th October 2016,

We are approaching the end of the US Tour, let hope the Tour reviewers will spare sometime to write up their review/impression or to post their opnion/question on the iDAC-6 and iHA-6 discussion thread. This tour is progress in a very cool and calm manner, lets hope we can attracted more discussion on the products eventually.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I tried searching for a iDac-6 thread but nothing came up.

Is there any word about a new version coming out soon since an iHA-6 Mk2 will be coming out? Or at least that is what I remember seeing.

I saw something about it on the Singapore CanJam thread

Thanks. Looks like there is a newer version coming out soon. Too bad the threads on this combo have not been more active. It sounds like a pretty solid and versatile combo.

How cool .. Almost 3 years later in my life, I'm discovering this thread .. the significance of same - I just purchased the Cayin Tri-Stack about a month ago and lov'n it thus far .. still getting to know the whole setup :) I wish back then I'd had the opportunity to participate in the testing / reviewing program. Noting ' Dillan ' comment about the Audeze LCD-4's .. I'd purchased a pair and gave them up just before I purchased the Cayin, as I couldn't drive the 4's with my old ( WooAudio WA7 ) setup :frowning2:.
