My distributors have advice me not to spread rumours
. I have a big mouth and like to chat with customers. But as you know, R&D is never certain, and there are lots of moving targets.
There are some things we are more certain of by now.
IDA-16 is not going to be replaced any time soon. We can't squeeze Omnia board and some other stuff inside IDA-16 and still keep it at this price. And some customers don't need the streaming device as they have other preferences (from cheap Google Chromecast to other high end streamer). So, the plan is to release a preamp+Omnia+optional CD transport in the 17" wide series. This model can also work with Evolution One.
The all-in-one IDA-32 would have everything built-in but cost more. I am still hopeful that it can be released before end of the year.
