    I assume this is stock without any of those custom filters applied which I keep reading about?

    It's a stock dac1421, available for a tour after visiting an US reviewer, I don't expect him to have done anything to it....

    Any chance this could head back to @soekris via the UK? If so I'd love to give it a listen, as I’ve been after something smaller than the Gungnir Multibit. Cheers

    I'd love to give this a listen in germany, too. And send it back to denmark. Very interested in this DAC but a blind purchase isn't an option for me unfortunately.
    I'm aware I don't quality for a loaner, unfortunately, too.

    Would love to read @BenjaminBore his impression vs the Gungnir Multibit and ADI 2 though. :)

    Well, if there is an Europe branch to this loaner tour, I would be very interested to listen to it in Prague, Czech Republic.

    I'm near Reading & have a DAC1421. You're welcome to have a listen sometime. (edit - it's really good)

    I'd like to hear it. I won't have to bug @PacoTaco to bring it over to my house then.

    Count me in, Los Angeles, CA. Maybe I can take it over to @BillOhio and compare it to the Yggdrasil.

    I'm open to extend the tour to Europe after the US, with Friends and Contributors. Somebody in the US might decide to keep it, I'm open to that, then I could put up another one for the European tour.....

    Sigh, being in Asia really does have its downsides when it comes to things like this. The 1421 is what I'd like to try pairing with a BW, as the Gungnir Multibit form factor and apparent requirement for being left on 24x7x365 doesn't really work for my apartment.
