-Surprised it's still built on xmos XU208
-Jitter is no longer anxious :p
-Specs look really nice. The stacked LM4562 output looks interesting.

Don't products built with the XU216 usually do MQA though? So we can be happy with the XU208 :)

With the extra horsepower that's an option, yes. :)

If only they had a use for that extra horsepower, other than MQA. PEQ for example. My impression of Topping is that they are fantastic at designing analog sections, integrating that with DACs, USB interfaces, etc. But also lacking when it comes to software development. I hope that the software side of things is something they can grow into... I would love for Topping to grow into being competition for Matrix Audio.

I think they are aiming for that. Just takes time or course :D
