Default AK4497 won't be Flagship anymore

AKM stated that there will be a new flagship DAC chip soon.

I am quite interested in a new DAC of them. Might be worth it to wait.

Nevermind I found it, not much is announced until CES 2019.

I think it will be very difficult to improve the current situation. It's almost at the limit of physics. Most progress is still made with a good layout design or a good build structure.
