I'm going to hazard a guess here that the delays aren't actually Antelope's problem, but instead, are tied up with Wavelength, Ayre, Wyred & Berkeley's delays.

 

That is, the problem isn't them.

 

It's Apple.

 

Apparently, a recent release/patch of Mac OS X completely fubared the 24/192 over USB code, and we're waiting on 10.6.4 for a fix. Or rather, we're waiting on dot-4 for final testing before release. And no, sorry Windows users, no one wants to pre-release for Windows only with no knowledge of Mac cross-compatibility (or lack thereof).

 

This is just a guess, however. I have no special insider knowledge -- only suspicions based on anecdotes and the fact that a *lot* of hi-res DACs are having slippage issues right now.

 

I'm hearing that this could mean delays well into the Fall ....

The Apple comment is true, but IIRC Gordon commented that Windows isn't even (properly) supporting Class 2.0 USB Audio. Oh and Wyred4Sound states their 24/192 USB is using proprietory drivers.

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

Shipped today. Buddy has word clock so I should have 2 weeks or a month to listen before adding it.
