No idea why there is a need to censor when this is such a well known brand.
Not sure about the staunch believers from the objective/measurements camp. But I think for the money (EDIT: with or prior to the raise), it's a pretty good product. It's a real shame that legacy PCI slots are increasingly hard to find on high-end SFF motherboards, though. They seem to exist only on the really scary entry-level mATX ones.
The case tucked away nicely out of sight. Only 2 cables coming out of the case that is the Firewire to the DAC and the HDMI direct to the projector. Perhaps for future set up, I will put it to a receiver.
A lot of mATX board also come with PCI slot (especially the older P67/H67 based).
But back to the topic...any distributor for this brand in SG? In case I ever want to give it a try
They are strictly direct sales only, I think.
I've just had a closer look. The new price at £497 is just plainly stupid. You would have to shoot me with a minigun to get that me to spend that sort of money on that product.
The offered "subscriber" price is £189 (slashed from £299), which was what I had based my earlier verdict on. Doesn't mean that when I say it sounds like a £500 DAC means that it should be priced that way. Idiots.
Looks like another audio company heading for guaranteed suicide to me.
BTW, anyone who wants the email can PM me. Think I'll pass.

Not exactly my definition of a "high-end" SFF-friendly board but I'll give you that and eat my words. Nice find.
