Or of course you could go to the other Aus buy which was organised by my flatmate:
http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/group-bu ... au-nz.html

We've received all the boards, almost all of the parts (think we didn't get enough power/gain switches)... I even assembled one for myself on the weekend and it tested and works fine :D

We have a couple of kits that are at this point un-dedicated to people at this point iirc, so if you're in Brissy and/or want to contact Hovo on that thread feel free :)

Interested in getting one... but I think I'll wait for the desktop version.

Is anyone here getting close to finishing their build yet ? I know thats easy for me to type, but the finished product looks good in these photos:

No idea how it measures against nwavguy's claims.

I just wish someone would take nwavguy up on his challenge, but with people still waiting for the circuit board I'm starting to see why this hasnt happened.

BTW grev, what do you think about the upcoming head streamer? any guesses as to price? quality?
I need a USB DAC (for work to go with my DT770), considering the FiiO E10 (great price + free shipping atm), but might hold back if it is expected to be sub $200 and good... :evil:

Thats 'grevillea'. old chum, and I cant advise you on any of HRTs other products. I'm still using the Steamer and it works just fine, but so many DACs have come down the 'pike since then.
