    Oooooh... really exciting.

    It certainly looks different to the BOSS.

    Yum!

    Mass production of the KATANA has started!

    Confused! Is this part of the new DAC? Where are the analogue outputs?

    Also, how will the front end of the new DAC compare to the Digione board?

    Gruesome! Hopefully it will sound better than it looks!

    You will definitely want to hide that in a case!

    What will the new DAC be called and will it have its own case?

    hello,
    KATANA is the name of the stack.
    its composed of:

    KATANA DAC board, housing the ESS 9038
    OPAMP board which is the analog output stage with both balanced (XLR) and un-balanced (RCA) outputs
    MICROCONTROLLER board feeding the power

    initially offered with an acrylic case while the aluminum version is being worked on.

    regards,
    Andre

    Hi Andre.

    Sounds crazy!... in a good way. lol

    Will it be able to be controlled by Moode?

    Hmmm?

    Are the XLR outputs fully balanced, and will it be possible to control the volume through software to the XLR's. I would like to feed the signal direct to my monoblock power amps without the need for a pre-amp.

    Alternatively, is there an option for a stepped attenuator with this design?

    Hi Geoff.

    I think they have something on their website with an attenuator control.
