Hello @folzag. Thanks for the kind words. Yes, i would be interested in reviewing the HAP-S1. Please give me a couple of weeks and then start a conversation with me to coordinate sending it in.

The EVGA Nu Audio soundcard might be well worth a look. No idea how it sounds but EVGA is the first new player in the PC soundcard space in years.

It looks really interesting to me. Theoretically 2 watt output? (did not specify at what distortion level, however), in a PC package? I'd love to have my gear inside my PC.

Still in for this one.
Literally made an account here to say "don't get this". While the surround sound tech Sennheiser used in the GSX 1000 is, quite frankly, completely nuts awesome, the actual audio quality of the unit itself gets its butt handed to it by almost every headphone jack carrying device I've ever owned, including (drastically) a Soundblaster e5, the on-board port on every mobo i've owned since 2006, the lightning adapter for an iPhone, the (damaged) phone jack itself... need I go on? It's very, very weak and lean sounding into Sennheiser G4ME Zeros. I cringe every time I type that name, but it's basically a 598 [IIRC] in headset form, so they good sound.

But still, that surround sound tech is the most convincing thing I've heard out of two speakers, and I'm almost tempted to get (another) one and take a soldering iron to it.

Interesting. I infer you don't have it anymore, but an easy verification would be use it like a DAC and run the output into a really clean headphone amp.

I am looking for the measurements.

And if I still had it I'd be glad to measure it for you. Unfortunately, it only spent about two days outside it's package before it went back. But yes, I'm sorry for not having more concrete data for you.
