Just want to add that LP5 has been reviewed already, by me and a few others on head-fi, so you can get an idea what this DAP is about. Keep in mind, we only had Gold review sample, that is the one you want to get, it's superior in sound quality over Silver. $700 listed here is for Silver, not Gold. For Gold you will need to add $250 on top of it, if you are spending that much money - might as well buy the best version. Also, don't want people to be confused with Penon pricing, their default price lists Silver, not Gold.
