Hey Guys,
Just received updated tracking info and barring any shipment delays these should arrive at our warehouse tomorrow. We will let you guys know when tracking info is uploaded.
Expect an update from us on 6/27 or sooner if something comes up.
Any update on a ship date for this drop? Thanks!
any update on the status of this? i'm just seeing "order placed".
Will the drop be to Australia?
Hi everyone,
This drop ended early at the request of the vendor. This happens for various reasons, the most common one being that retailers carrying their product successfully complained about customers saving money.
Fulfillment wise, we're roughly on track, we've heard that they "might" be delayed by "a few" days, but no precise confirmation at this time.

Thank you for your response, hope this drop will come back soon :(
So we are not going to get a response?
What happened to the drop ? why it ended before time? please bring it back...
6 hours ago this had 22 hours left. What happened?
well done!
I can appreciate that for whatever reason you guys are deciding not to post overseas.
What I don't appreciate is that you fail to offer a reason for it or even respond to any of the comments made in regards to this matter.
Discussion is the key to solving problems. Apathy is not.

Could we get the option to hide drops that do not ship to us in the settings to avoid future disappointments?
Thanks for the reply mate.
All I wanted to hear. :)
Can it be connected to an iphone with IOS under version 7.0?
I keep checking back to this discussion, can someone from Massdrop chime in?
Is it possible to provide international shipping on this, or is that a no go?
Care to provide the reason for it when the last drop on this was not US only?
I am the person that started the poll that lead to Audioengine D3 and this drop and guess what? Both were not available to ship to Canada.
Perhaps that is just too bad, but when I went all the trouble creating the poll, and waiting for the product to launch, it's hard not to feel that my time and efforts were being stiffed.
I'm not trying to sound resentful, but there's clearly a lot of international people (Massdroppers?) sorely disappointed when they see this being available then found out they could not have it shipped to them.
Perhaps it's best if you do not show products that's not available to ship to my country at all rather than tease and disappoint by giving me false hope.
I know they aren't really the same class but they are in the same price point... Can anybody comment on the HRT microStreamer vs the Schiit Magni/Modi sound quality alone (I know the HRT is more portable)? Is the Schiit worth the $50 over the HRT at this drop price? I know that's a very subjective question but any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!
Also, fairly new to MassDrop...what's it mean when there is only a single price for the drop? Yet it still gives me the option to join or commit to join...
I've been waiting for this awesome little unit to come back on here - there is clearly a bunch of international buyers eager to get involved... so what's with the US only offer? Feels like 2004. When this dropped last in August 2013 the international shipping was there. Offer was US$149.99 + $16.21 shipping to Australia. Please bring this back so we can get this item over the line.
So as far as I can discern, this is a paired headphone amp and dac device right? I imagine the dac is the better of the two components as is the case in most of these type of devices? Would I do well to get a separate headphone amp to pair with this little guys DAC?
Thanks Pachoo. One thing I'm also considering though is that C5D has an onboard power supply which can be recharged. This would be great for on-the-go applications that wouldn't require a drain on my phone/laptop battery. Bass Boost is a null point for me, but agree that it could be a dealmaker for some. Still on the fence about both, we'll see where these drops land in a few days.
Damn you Massdrop for no international shipping.
Anyone know how this compares to the JDSLabs C5D, also being dropped?

The HRT Microstreamer appears to be much better reviewed. I own the Objective 2 + ODAC and their original CYMOBB altoids amplifier and both are great so I am sure the C5D is very good too.
One advantage the C5D has over the HRT Microstreamer is that it has a bass boost toggle/button. The CYMOBB has a bass boost button that works very well so I am sure the bass boost on the C5D is great as well (many times bass tailoring on these kind of devices doesn't work well at all, sometimes making the option totally useless). The HRT microstreamer doesn't appear to have a bass boost.
However, the microstreamer does appear to review better than the C5D IMO. I can't give an opinion since I don't own the microstreamer or the C5D but I don't think you can go wrong with either device.
One thing I can add is that JDS Labs products are known for not coloring the sound much at all. It makes the sound louder but doesn't add highs, lows, etc. unlike many other devices. They are very neutral which is great if that is what you want. The HRT microstreamer, based on reviews, seems to color the sound more which is what I am looking for myself as I want thicker lows, better mids, etc. Of course, as I mentioned, the HRT microstreamer doesn't have a bass boost which could be a make or break thing for some people as the C5D does.
Will you add international shipping? was really waiting for that :(
Have one of these and could not be more pleased. Solidly built, works effortlessly, and sounds great. Using it with a pair of old school Senns. Would definitely make the purchase again.
Wow, this device must be amazing. Every review I have seen can't say enough about the magical sound coming out of this thing. I am so in and can't wait to hear this thing.
Is it possible to ship to Canada?
I have waited months for the HRT to drop, only for it to be US only.
bring this back please!
We need this!
How about massdropping the Audio Quest Dragonfly v1.2 DAC or Cambidge Audio DAC XS?
This thing really needs to come back!
Darn it, has there been a 3 unit leftovers drop? I missed it.

Gotta agree with iRo55, been waiting for a while now for another drop on this.
Any update on the status of this order?
