Also, to throw my unsolicited thoughts into future models/considerations
1) Cat5/802.11. I really think this is the most elegant (and possibly best) way to get the 0s and 1s to the DAC. I'm not saying get rid of usb/spdif, but maybe decrease to 1 coax and 1 optical, and use the cost savings to add in a cat5 on the back. If people rly want to go wireless they can by an external adapter.
2) Phono pre-amp. I haven't read thru *every* discussion here, but I don't see many people talking about it. I think on the 'flagship' audiophile model (i.e. iNova or whatever else you guys have in store for the future) should be a truly all-in-one solution.
3) Get rid of video out. It's either adding to cost or taking away from improving the audio portion. I'm assuming you guys looked at some numbers, but I feel like very few people are watching a ton of video on ipods/iphones, and even if they are, they probably aren't using it much thru the iNova (maybe better left for musicbox etc?). At least throw in HDMI on the next model.
