I really hope they make one of these with a toslink in some day.
What was the final price for this one? Was it 420?
Has anyone had a problem receiving the wrong item from Massdrop? I ordered the PS Spout but they sent a PS Perfectwave power cord. Since both are the PS brand I guess it's a case of grabbing the wrong thing from the shelf without checking what it actually was. Mistakes happen I guess (although I never had this happen the million times I ordered from Amazon.) Only way I can figure out how to contact them was through the help center, but it's been four days and all I've heard was the initial robo reply. At this point I suppose the only thing I can do is see if PayPal can help get my money back. Any advice? Know of any other way to contact them? This was the first purchase I made on Massdrop and it really has disappointed me.

Seriously? I can understand one mistake, but that's nuts.

received a power cable instead of my sprout yesterday from massdrop. I hit up support waiting to hear back. this is the 3rd drop i've participated in and 2 out of the 3 had issues.
I'd be all over this if the output extended a little lower and it didn't have the 7db boost at 70Htz.
Why no 230v option available? I need 230v.
Wondering if headphone jack is good (comparable to schiit or o2+dac)? Planning to use as a headphone amp/dac. Also on bluetooth, can I connect to two bluetooth headphones? Please help..

Thanks...

We have some great news everyone. This drop is currently way ahead of schedule, as we have already received the bulk shipment. All that’s left is to break the order down and prepare your individual orders for shipment. We are aiming to get everything out the door within the next two days. Once everything is shipped, tracking confirmation emails will follow.

Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/24 or sooner if something comes up.
Great news group! We placed the order shortly after the drop ended and the vendor has let us know that it's already been picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 11/19. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.

Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 11/19 or sooner if something comes up.
Seems over priced for its specs imo
I bought this unit in the last round when they did offered the 220V version. It came with a monster size power cable. I have this unit hooked up to my dynaudio excite x16 (bought used) with a pair of speaker stands. I have an old and yet small Dell Latitude laptop that is too slow to run anything useful but I have finally found that I can set this up for Foobar and have the music pump out via ASIO: PS Audio USB driver device. I setup my Android to control the foobar player.

All up it costs me about $1000US + an obsolete laptop and the music coming out of the speaker when playing Flac file is very good.
Just released issue of Hi-End audio magazine TAS has a nice review of little Sprout amp

Not really a good deal on this. It's what it sells for everywhere.

Whole 4%?

they recently dropped MSRP, they were $899 I believe...
I'm a little sad I bought it at this price... but you know what?

I've had the unit long enough where I can say I used up the difference in cost.

Love the form factor.
This amp has been great for me. My only real complaint is that the pot really cuts out on the left channel on the first four clicks. It's only an issue when I'm playing Pandora through my Roku. For some reason the output level is extremely high with Pandora and requires me to turn the volume knob way down. But this will also be an issue with any other high level input I play through my amp. Probably not an issue on every one of these amps, but if you get a pot like this, it's a hassle.

Otherwise, I love this amp. It sounds great.

It's not as good of a deal now that the retail price has gone down to $500, but still a good deal if the nice power cord is still thrown in and the drop hits the lowest price.

Can Massdrop confirm if the upgraded cord is still included? Thanks.
K.T.N
At this lower price point I don't think PS Audio would include the upgraded power cord. It's a very competitive price considering other similar offerings in a small integrated amps market.
Also, it would mean PS Audio (and Massdrop) shifted previous group buy purchasers and own us a refund.
