    I'm interested in reviews, although I'll never buy it.

    Clicked on your link..

    Gave me a pop-up box asking me to sign into "athena.asus.com"

    Could not close the box or switch tabs at all.. had to terminate browser in task manager.

    The info on the device has been out for awhile.
    It will be interesting to check out the unit and hear how it sounds.

    It does have like 12 op-amp sockets, some one would go on a long op-amp rolling quest to figure out what sound signature they will get with different combos of op-amps.

    I bet you could fork out at lest another $200.00 or more for 11 different opamp chips. Even more with pre-made Bursons opamps, could be around $1200.00 asuming it would fit. The opamp chip industry is going to boom boom some more.

    Actually it depends on how you get your op-amps.

    I don't read Mandarin either, but picture tells a thousand words. The pics already self explanatory so there isn't need for a translator, on the next page the picture even explains the circuitry in plain English as well

    So if this is the insides of this unit who would care to take an educated or wild guess as to approximate selling price of it??

    [​IMG]

    Just curious to a round about figure on what we think how much it would go for..

    And when it finally comes out who would be closest to actually guessing the right or closet price of it.

    Me my guess i have no idea lol...

    The inside looks like a diy kit on Hefty Steroids though lol

    No that is not really a guess...IIRC that is about the MSRP, well between $400 and $500.

    Edit: Sorry, I wasn't trying to mess up your guessing idea, I just figured you wanted to know the price.

    The price may change after the product has been out for awhile but that price range is accurate.
