The Model is now officially discontinued

During October The Model will be replaced by the Model S.

The Model S will comprise 75 Ohm S/PDIF (BNC) input only (well, two of them now, actually).

The Model S will preserve the overall architecture of the previous Model. It will however also bring a couple of improvements, setting the new standard in high quality natural reproduction from the digital source.

As for the USB front end, since in practice it turned out to perform somewhat inferior to the S/PDIF one (please see the article on this topic, released in March this year), work on improving existing USB solution is in progress. It is still too early to talk about actual device(s) employing results of this work, but it should come in a couple of months.

For the time being, the AYA II will remain the only Audial DAC with USB front end.
