Some rewards are no longer available?
There was a promotion for newsletter subscribers, so on the desktop version of Kickstarter, you can see some "all gone" rewards at the bottom of the list.  These don't show on the mobile application.  We posted here and just about every other place we post to make sure those interested were on the newsletter list.  If you missed it, please send me a PM.

We still have ALL the rewards we started with, plus one more, and we may be adding a few more later on.  You can always add them to your stash later, so no problem if you want multiple rewards.

Here's a list of currently available rewards:
  - ILM
  - KING ILM
  - KING STM
  - Linear PS for STM
  - Linear PS PAIR for Maraschino
  - Motherboard Upgrade for Classic Cherry Stereo
  - Motherboard Upgrade for Classic Cherry MONO PAIR
  - USB to SPDIF converter
  - Golden Cherry
  - Dual 60V 1kW Upgrade
  - DAC DAC (HS or TL)
  - Golden Upgrade


There's a surprise, only for backers, coming up in a week or so....  You can become a backer for as little as $1, so no excuses.

Thanks for your support!

Almost forgot....

When we launched this project, we broke the record we set last year for the fastest funded Sound Project in Kickstarter history!  That's right, we reached our goal in a little more than 6 hours....  We want to get to 10x or more by May 13th.  Thanks again.

How much better is the linear power supplies?
The new linear power supply will be around 52V, which will drive 320W into 4 ohms with the Maraschino.  This is very preliminary, and still in design phase, but twice the capacitance on the output of the linear supply compared to the 60V supply may be possible, and a small decrease in output idle noise from the amp may also be possible.  Only testing will tell.  One advantage is lower AC line noise.  This product is by popular demand.  Thanks for your post.

Hi Tommy,

Once you finished testing we need to talk benefits for the golden cherries and possible upgrade paths for the 60v. Keep us informed!

Hi Tommy,

Can the Cherry Jr. be upgraded with the Mega (Gigachino? Terachino? Petachino? Exachino?) board?  My buddy in north jersey who runs Marachinos on his Maggie 1.7s wants to Mega his Jr. for his (my old!) Von Schweickerts.

Thanks

Yes we can, but the price is going WAY up after the Kickstarter.   Thanks.

Stop missing out on how good your music can sound!  The DAC DAC gets you to a higher level.  No waste on bells and whistles.  Just a super clean presentation with nearly zero noise.
Get a DAC DAC High-Spec or Tube-Like Demo Unit while you can for more than 60% (!) off list price.  We only have a few of these....
2-Day special starts 8AM EST Friday and concludes 8AM Sunday:
