Any MDAC owners out there? I've been happy with the MDAC ever since I purchased it in February of 2012. Excited for the upgrade: http://mdac2.lakewestaudio.com/ Features: Dual ES9018 Sabre32 DACs, one dedicated chip per channel for true dual mono operation. Brand new discrete Class A analog stage design. Redesigned on-board power supply circuitry guaranteeing optimal performance using the stock AC adaptor. High Speed USB 2.0 controller for asynchronous USB Audio Class 2.0 with 32 bit resolution and up to 768 kHz sampling rates. Driverless operation under MacOS X and Linux as well as Windows with UAC 1.0 fallback (up to 96 kHz). Optional open-source ASIO driver for Windows to support UAC 2.0 capabilities. DSD 64Fs supported via USB as well as S/PDIF with DSD 128Fs and higher available via USB (DoD standard). FPGA on board, opening the doors to limitless customization and further improvements delivered via software updates. Ability to bypass all internal processing in the Sabre32 and replace it with custom LakeWest developments down to the noise shaper. RAM buffer for memory play without ASRC for S/PDIF sources. Asynchronous USB and transport ClockLock interface ASRC free playback or optionally S/PDIF playback with ASRC without memory buffer induced latencies. Passive AV bypass unbalanced inputs allowing coexistence of analog preamplifier / surround processor with the DAC’s own digital preamplifier. 4W XLR Female on the rear panel for balanced headphone connection. Made in EU, each unit tested and qualified personally by JW Costs involved: Next Generation Mainboard £400~500 standard build, without Bulk Foil resistors for 'Toy' option add £50 for the additional resistors for 'Fusion' option add £350 for the additional resistors Seems to be a lot of interest: M-DAC Next
