You may have heard about the LH Labs Geek Out...one of the many new small USB DAC's and headphone amps. This one though has piqued my interest a lot more than all others.
It features asynchronous USB playback up to 32/384 kHz as well as DSD capability. It also comes in 3 versions depending on your cans (which I prefer over a "jack of all trades" which ultimately compromises in one way or another). There's a 450mW version for cans of 100 ohm impedance or less; an IEM specific version, and a monster 1000mW version for very hungry headphones.
I contacted the company and they're very open to group buys. What do you think? I'm happy to handle it if there is sufficient interest. Who is in? At prices ranging from $199 to $299 I think they're incredible value for money. Details here

Who is keen?
