  1. Looks great but yet another NAAM video that is 99% marketing BS. Don't tell us how good it is, show us! Show us the actual thing, preferably working, not a bleeding animation, we can see that anytime.

  2. Love the idea of this, but $200 is WAY too much for a frame and some cable jacks! I'll wait and get one of the other countless versions of this sure to come out for around $50.

  3. Xtopher, you're paying for great quality DAC units internally. It's more than ports and cables, it's digital interfaces with a lot of circuitry inside. You won't find anything close to this for $50, trust me.
