I believe Mitredog has a 3000 sq ft. cabinet making facility with a dry back spray booth and several other quality toys.

John W did you have chance to listen to anything at Munich? I know you are sceptical at just how worthy it is doing serious listening at HIFI shows. Ive totally lost touch with the latest ones. Last decent DAC I listened to was at Steven's (Toy) costing around 4K...memory fails me on the name , but there was also an entry level Aurender player (000's)
I'm not sure whether you'd regard it as competition but I bought an Allo Boss DAC recently, which plugs on top of my RPi. The Allo Boss DAC sounds better than the MDAC, and cost $73.

This probably means I will stick out for the FDAC rather than take an interim MDAC2 (it also means I can sell my redundant MDAC).

Sounds good! Black alloy ideally.

Also, replacing the knob (fnarr) with a nice oak one could look awesome.. carries the style from the sides onto the front.

Problem being Mitredog has not been on the forum for a while, maybe he cut one corner too many ?

This is a 100% fact, I'm using the Allo piano plus Kali clocker and it truly and beyond anyone's doubt outclasses my MDAC and a host of more expensive Dacs I mentioned a while back.

The IQ DAC is not to be sniffed at either for way less money.

It was the Resonessence Mirus at 5000, a half-width design like the MDAC.
