US manufacturer Exogal (out of this galaxy) launched their Comet DAC at the Munich High end exogel_comet_hifi_newsshow but we somehow missed out on it so here is the latest news from them.
The base configuration includes balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs, digital volume control, and asynchronous USB input with audio signals being processed using Exogal up-sampling and filtering technology. The USB input can accept up to 32-bit/192kHz PCM data rates and the Comet provides true balanced and single ended analogue outputs.
The Comet can be controlled by the Exogal wireless remote console, the SR-71, an Android phone or tablet (running 4.3 or higher with Bluetooth 4.0 support) or an iPad (coming soon), iPhone 4s or newer, or iPod Touch.
