hi clog,

you can still pre-order it here They will go online in the shop on Sunday, that will give me sufficient time to assemble the pre-orders first.

The back panels are in stock and available in store, if you order an ODAC there just pick the option with the panel included, saves you a bit

Just wanted to follow up I got this past weekend and got it installed. Ran into a couple issues (not related to head n headfi in anyway). First I used the recommended network cable wires to connect it to the O2 but I think the wire I used, coming from cat6 and not cat5 it's higher quality which means thicker wires. Couldn't find any holes to pass all the wires through so ended up just going around the back so now it bulges a little bit but not too noticable. Also I was running into an issue where when it was completely in the battery area the left channel would go silent. Had electrical tape on battery contacts so it wasn't there. Turned out the solder leads were too long and scraping the solder mask on the O2. Some electrical tape to cover that up and trim the leads some more and it's good to go.

In the US finding metric screws + nuts that small was a little difficult. Ended up using 6x1/2" (I think). and found some nylon washers.

All that being said the odac + o2 works great. Can't wait till the ODA comes up and hopefully makes the form factor better and make it easier to connect the o2 and odac.

Hi, all paid for orders have been shipped out today, I will update the sheet with the tracking references tomorrow evening, am a bit tired now and still have some orders from the store that want to get shipped tomorrow morning.
The lady in the post office almost collapsed when I came to the counter with two huge bags full of parcels and told her Insured and signed for please took almost one and a half hours to get them all registered and labeled
