My own answer to this is 'very, very unlikely'.
the other newer products dont exhibit any change in design philosophy either

Its looking as if @kuribo's public shaming has borne some fruit (scroll down to the last post) - https://www.computeraudiophile.com/f...-dac-heads-up/

Also on Head-Case, as his 1st post... Looks like he is looking for beef.

Looks as if Soren offered to update his boards for $25/per but he initially declined and expected it for free. Now he accepts that deal after someone else agreed that it was a good deal... I mean that's an awesome deal, I'd so jump on that.

Hey Soren how much can you sell those v1 boards for? I'm sure many here would love some discounted boards to mod.

Well my thoughts are for any diy kit be it assembled or unsoldered should
at least be properly develop before sales. Off course being diy, tweaks or
improvement there after is all up to the builder. At the same time I do think
it is fair for the designer to charge for extra services beyond certain hours
of tech support.

Cheers
