D-09 discontinuation notice

So, as implied by the title, Audial “small” (“Pebble”) DAC is going to be discontinued.

Released in November 2009, D-09 was a sort of AYA II/III DACs successor, so moderately priced unit yet capable to address very serious requests. And what D-09 offered remained in fact unique in its price tag all the time: natural sound performance achieved by real audiophile architecture with fancy discrete analogue circuit, highly elaborated supplies and layout, and quality parts, and with everything packed into the cute chassis, featuring all types of commonly used inputs.

Currently, developments at this place are mostly oriented towards the uppermost end of the market, so there will be no replacement unit for D-09 at this time.

Final D-09 orders will be accepted until 10 March 2012.
