Ok sounds exiting  :D

Do you know if it will be all digital like the Evo or with analog like DAC 10?

Would the preamp stage in this DAC be the same as the one in DAC-9/10/Alita or would it be an upgraded one?

Will the AMG DAC have MQA and DSD 512 compatibility?

I am pretty sure AMG DAC will be shipping in July.
@ Skyscratch - I am very sure you will love the AMG series. They are two level up from IDA-8.

Hello @Jason,
the AMG STA is running since yesterday, about 12 hours :wink: !
With the Ida-8 as preamp it sounds allready great, deeper and with a big sound stage ( compare to the integrated).
Now, i’m just thinking about the result with the AMG DAC …
I have understood some element take more time but have you an idea of launch ?
Thanks again for your work, music is more natural in my House and it’s just so good  :)

Oh, some chip (not relevant to performance) was no longer available (yap, the chip shortage problem is very bad, hitting every industry hard) so we have to procure the new chip, change the layout, make a new sample, test and go into production. This little problem caused 3 months delay! 
We expect AMG DAC to ship late October to early November.

Hello Rusty…
I’m coming back to ask you a little teasing about AMG Dac …  :roll:
I know you have to keep more informations for your distributors and dealers but i hope you could tell us few details:
- one or two analog inputs ( real and not analog / digital / analog ) ?
- main chip is a AKM or ESS ?


STA is wonderfull and i’m thinking to acquire PRA before … two sources, one streamer and one turntable, no more !
In your opinion, PRA is useless with the combo Amg STA / DAC ?

Thanks for your work, for MUSIC  :wink:

Unless you have more than one analog source, or want to optimize the system using PRA's hardware EQ settings, you should just get the AMG DAC.
It has a very good analog input (no A2D).  AMG DAC is shipping before the end of November, I think this time it is certain.

I forgot to add that if you have high-end analog source, you should get the AMG PRA. AMG DAC single analog input is very good, but it is not a purist preamp with all those features that PRA provided. A user is concerned that AMG DAC's analog input makes the AMG PRA obsolete. I suggest that if anyone is confused that a small preamp section (however good) on a DAC can do a better job than an entire product dedicated as a preamp, go read the product description of AMG PRA.
Ulitmately the decision of whether to use a dedicated preamp depends on your analog source and need for optimising the system.
