i have the previous version ... apparently the main difference is that this one has a better headphone amp, the dac portion is supposedly the same ... so i'll pass

gr8 bang-for-the-buck unit though ... highly recommended

i did get the pre-amp, which is also on sale, though

looks like all of their silver "z" series stuff is on sale :-)
