As you know Lloyd, the 5000 Signature has been discontinued long time ago, so I doubt it will be upgraded. Nevertheless we can speculate a new generation of Zanden digital products may be at the horizon after the Seikoh is introduced but my personal opinion is that there will be no digital from Zanden even after the Seikoh. Would be glad though if Yamada-san found a substitution for the legendary Philips TDA1541A S1 Double Crown chip and CDM-Pro2 Transport that he found irreplaceable until now...

Yes, that all makes sense. And I remember speaking with Eric Pheils of Zanden a few years ago who did say that after so many years of investigation and detailed design, the 4-box digital was in Yamada-San's view (at that time 3-4 years ago) the best that he could get redbook.

Fantastic! Congrats Marcus! A thing of beauty. I know the chassis well from the Zanden DAC and its PSU. Look forward to reading all about it!
