Jonas my unit is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Hopefully yours soon also. Audioman, Thank you for sharing. I'll make sure to have mine switched to usb2.0 and install the driver. How do you like the unit ? Satisfied with features and sound ?
I haven't gotten to my lossless library yet, as it's on another hard drive, but so far the stuff I've played has sounded great (and I'm sure a few hours of burn-in can't hurt). The features are awesome! Very well thought out piece of equipment. I enabled the DAC only jumpers, as I'm using the DAC to feed a NAD D 3020 and Woo Audio WA7, both of which have their own volume attenuators, and I wanted to keep the signal as pure as I can. This disables all features regarding volume control and muting of the L1 output, since the signal bypasses the volume attenuator in the m920.
While still a ripoff, I was a sucker and got the Grace remote, and I have to admit, it's really nice. It weighs a ton (as does the DAC itself)!
The built-in headphone amp seems solid as well. I've read that it was designed with lower-impedance headphones in mind, and it definitely does not have the power of my WA7, but it still drives my HD 700's (150 ohms) just fine with the volume up pretty high. The crossfeed is cool, and I'm looking forward to playing with it, as well as the user-selectable digital filters. It doesn't beat the SPL Phonitor's crossfeed, but that would be a little too much to ask, as the Phonitor has no-built in DAC, yet still costs more (and happens to be one of the best solid state headphone amps that I've ever heard, along with the Headamp GS-X MK II).
TL;DR: You should be very happy with your purchase. I certainly am.
Thanks for info. :)
My cargo is international shipping.... Hopefully Massdrop will start shipment today.
