At least 3 people have asked sbout the 1ohm option and CEntrance or massdrop replied that there would be a drop down box for 1ohm choice? I want to commit to $149 but see no drop down for 1ohm only one for Classic dacport. Can Massdrop please tell us what they are doing about this???

I would think they will add the drop down menu on Monday.

Curious as to the benefit of the 1ohm versions.

I believe for the damping factor. Generally if you want to drive IEMs, or some lower-than-average impedance full-size headphones.
FWIW, I picked this up in the last drop, and I love it. It was a spur of the moment buy (I went in for the IGG Geek Pulse and needed a stopgap, but that's another drawn out story for another day). Regardless, I use this paired with a O2, and the combo works wonderfully. Build quality is top notch.
I have the non-LX variant, as I figure later on I can use it with a laptop or in the office.

The following is one of several online articles explaining the importance of a lower output impedance.
