(on the other hand HDP will soon get it's long awaited linear power supply upgrade in March too, which brings the performance closer to DAC9).
Have you tested the HD(P) with the linear power supply, and if so, what's the perceived difference in sound quality? If you haven't tested it, then why or how do you expect an upgrade in SQ? I'd very much like to get a bearing on the sonic impact of the upcoming linear power supply...Moreover, can you confirm whether the volume control found in the Icon HD is the very same as the HDP?
Are there any pictures of the DAC-9 yet? I imagine the cabinet size and design will be that roughly resembling the 8 & 9-series amps and CDP-8..
PS. Oh, am I correct in understanding that the volume control of the HD will be disabled/fixed when connecting the RCA outputs to my poweramp, and that it hereby only functions with the headphones? Sorry if I didn't get that to begin with, but that's suddenly how I came to realize the matter when reading elsewhere that the preamp has been excluded in the HD, hence the omission of the letter "P" in HDP. If anything, might it not proove a slight advantage not having the signal to pass through a volume control and an input "shifter"?
Will it look anything like this Came up when I was searching for more info on google.http://picasaweb.google.com/nuforce.com/DAC9#
The final price is not set, should be between $1500 to $1900 (some of the costs are still not finalized). Production will begin in 2 weeks time, so availability should be around end of March or slightly sooner.We are convinced that there is no similar product with so much features and performance anywhere close to this price range
There was a post yesterday announcing the release of the DAC-9, http://www.digitalaudioblog.com/2011/03/nuforce-dac-9-launched.htmland elsewhere a price of $1300 and says "Signature Upgrade already included", http://www.upgradecompany.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.pbv.v1.tpl&product_id=15&category_id=16&vmcchk=1&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=122If this holds true, getting an es9018 D/A utilizing DAC with what Nuforce brings to it looks awfully good!Surprised there's no info on the Nuforce DAC-9 page however indicating it's been released... Waiting..
I take it this unit is not fully balanced?
The true-balanced XLR output produces twice the gain of the RCA output.
