I just got in the loop about this r2r thing. Will this product ever run again?

The R2R 11 dac/amp is a nice unit, or the Ares as a dac alone. Either will get you onto a nice r2r level; Ares has more life. http://www.audio-gd.com/R2R/R2R11/R2R11EN.htm

If anyone here is interested in purchasing both an Airist RDAC and Schiit Modi Multibit v2 (both in like new condition & very low hours on each) hit me up; I'm kinda needing to sell to fund my next R2R dac (if I can find a buyer, lol). $500 for both units with all original accessories and packaging w/ USPS First Class Shipping if in USA. I can post pics if anyone would like, too. You can also reach me at bogginhead2014@gmail.com

Check out the EC Designs DAC. It's $1K, but on par with the Denafrips Terminator

So, the rumor is that Airist is no longer? I hope that this doesn't mean that the RDAC will be discontinued.

I know it's my OCD, but please bring this back OR release another DAC with the same footprint as the Cavalli or THX amps :( I need my things to match!

R-2R, It’s like an infection causing an addiction, but a good one;) example: “Connected it up. Used it for an hour. ABSOLUTELY SENSATIONAL, blows AK/ES SABRE delta sugma dacs away. I've already ordered the next model up and plan to buy the Terminator as soon as possible. Video of actual unit here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1B5prd0JXrkYQmohnZsNpfYTx-45aQpZY/view?usp=drivesdk And here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1B3bGKOyeUgL-2aSiDfVFLg0WLhbZQR6w/view?usp=drivesdk Check the umpteen reviews. The Audiophilliac, Darko, Stereophile etc etc. The hype is real. The closest thing to a high end 'analogue DAC' I've ever heard, sounds über natural, incredibly detailed but never becomes fatiguing or etched like most Delta Sigma chips do. An absolute joy.” https://www.ebay.com/itm/Denafrips-Ares-II-R2R-Ladder-DAC-BRAND-NEW-SO-GOOD-I-BOUGHT-NEXT-MODEL-UP/224085607617?hash=item342c8b04c1:g:AkEAAOSwqShe4~Ls
