Dear Santa, oh wait, this is something else…
This is still fairly early concept of a new modular design, that should provide standalone digital player, balanced DAC, balanced amplifier, tube-based outputs, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, all with clean battery power.
They are still also not exactly set on digital player modules, but they want to offer two variants, one running on open Android, other one with some simplified system. But both of these variants should offer range of streaming services.
