    hi to all,
    just wanted to update with what we released on our site:

    The Katana is a complex DAC that offers multiple filtering and powering options.The pursuit of the best sound quality is what drives our design team and the reason behind our recent decision to halt manufacturing of the late KATANA.
    A new version, the 1.2, is in the works and will only have a few components changed resulting in a subtle, yet necessary SQ improvement.
    Please note the following:
    No orders will be accepted for the next 14 days.
    Already received your KATANA? A new one will be sent to you once the K1.2 is released.
    Already placed an order ? You will be soon contacted by our customer support team.
    Thank you for your understanding.


    technically we have ...
    We improved the LPF on summing opamp. Small improvement in SQ
    We improved filtering before analog stage . Medium improvement in SQ
    We improved noise escaping DC/DC convertor. Not quantified yet
    We connected earthing to board (with Nirvana PSU it will be automatic). Removal of some HF and better trebles . I would say small improvement but clearly audible
    Adding some 220uF caps to analog stage. No improvement


    KATANA 1.2 is being finalized and ready to ship by the end of the month.

    Thanks
    Andre

    I've had it running for a couple of days now and I have to say it's pretty special. It's very, very good indeed.

    I'll be doing a full review soon so watch out for that.

    keen to buy a Katana I've followed this thread with bated breath. I'd be very grateful for any indication as to when "soon" might be.
