Very interested in the mods. I visited a showroom ( dealer for both Peachtree and Bluesound) and their conclusion was neither were quite high end yet and are not carrying those specific products. They did suggest some of the esoteric amps using the GaNFets were very good. But for mainstream non-exoteric those of us who have to spend real money, the better of the A/B are still winners. They suggested there are much better streamers than the Blue Node. That leaves me with a lot to research. Bits may be bits, but what you do with them matters. Things seem to move fast though. I'll look up the D-H stuff.
This technology makes sense to me from the engineering side. Probably really bad for DAC and preamp makers. If the market is there, we need someone to do an ASIC for the entire front end and then high end will be affordable to the masses. Low volume, I guess FPLAs. Hear that, Masimo? You have the wherewithal to pull it off! The smartest engineering Mom and Pops are not going to get the volume needed even if they come up with the breakthrough ideas. Even Bruno has not got there yet.
From the PA-10 WEB, I could not tell what technology they were using. Some sort of hybrid maybe.
I see one here just can't stop insulting people. Sigh. Nobody can learn anything that way.
