New Audio Research DAC


Does anyone have any info on the new ARC DAC to be released later this year? Specifically, does it have an analog volume control to drive an amplifier directly? I read that it has a remote, so I'm hoping that means volume control and source selection.

I asked Leonard at ARC about this a few months ago when ordering tubes for my preamp.

At this time, he hinted that it would have a USB input.
