Man, I cant believe I got in on the first group of TPA Buffalo II dacs. They sold out quick again. I just finished the first generation Buffalo24 (ESS 9006). The new third generation ESS 9018 dac is a big step up. I cant wait. I will use the MUX and the koa wood case so it will be easy to get cased up. More good sound from the TPA guys. Woo Hoo.
