Default ESS9008 DAC chip group buy

Just like it sounds. This is more or less an interest check for now. I've heard MOQ of 5 at around $55 per chip, and I'm assuming prices will go down from there. So post your interest in here and we can look into it.

Also, a PCB could be possible if there's interest, but that would likely be a collaborative project, and I'm not sure if everyone would prefer to do their own thing.

Ok, price from Shaw is $48 per chip at 5, and $43 at 25.

I can place the order to my house in Canada, but I'd have to pass on the extra duty and brokerage fees, so it'd be (roughly) $10 per chip higher. If that's ok with everyone I'll do that, otherwise we can figure something else out (ie. someone else do the distribution).

That's not much of a price break.

I wouldn't mind doing the purchase and distribution, although I'd need some advice on shipping internationally.

I guess there's not much point to this group buy now. The new model seems pretty interesting.

Default Ismosys

Ordered a few es9008s 1/17 received 1/23 via UK. Surprisingly prompt. But sure enough, as soon as I received them Ismosys is showing es9018's as available but 'back-ordered' instantly.

Damn, the es9008s have jumped nearly 20% (47.90 to 57.51ea) in a week! And the min. qty. for es9018's & es9012's is ten at $78.30ea. ---- Seems I read something about their es9018's being the Japanese version?

Fools unite. I'll go for 2 of Sabre32's, 'pay-p' up front/if req. , but appears this demand/supply curve really needs time to level out! Might be better off to re-evaluate; (mumble) "next 'tangent' ?."
