I rarely chime in on forums, but on this topic I will. Every single unit that goes out the door better be "golden". If something is not working as it should, we're not going to shrug it off. We take it personally. We don't pull one from a large lot for QC. Every unit gets touched and tested before we box it up. We sell clear cases, there is no mystery as to what's inside. It wouldn't make sense for us to send one into Amirm that measures beautifully and then everyone else gets a sub-standard product. As a matter of fact, we are also looking forward to the measurements. Amirm has testing equipment that we can only dream of owning. If our DAC measures on scale with other products in our price range, we'll be thrilled. If it doesn't, we'll take our licks and learn from it. We were recently informed that Amirm works with manufacturers in the demo stage to assist before production begins. We are definitely going to take advantage of this for our future products. I think it's a wonderful tool that Amirm has made available to companies such as ours. We are not active participants in the forums, we prefer emails and phone conversations. However, we do read discussions and the feedback from sites such as this one. We are always open for idea's on upgrades and additions/changes that people would like to see.
