Now, imagine this little preamp, feeding out to a Surround Master... WOW!Honestly I don't know why I'm still confused over this subject: I mean, I can still walk and chew gum (maybe I should check myself on that? :-()

"It's a phono plus all the usual ins and outs like CD and optical etc. Dunno about digital out. Let's all keep in mind the price tag."

"This particular product is the preamp, which is stereo anyway, so toslink would do as the digital output."
Hi ZerochiefThanks for the welcome. I don't work there just had some inside information!
Hey sonikI'm hoping the v3 will be much more than just adding an internal DA converter with optical SPDIF input. You can buy those for peanuts at Parts Express ( and elsewhere) & that category doesn't inspire confidence in audio quality.
That was touched on by Overture in both the 1st & 6th posts of the above linked thread.
Having a v1 makes you sort of a... wait for it... PIONEER!I have a v1/SQ model Surround Master and it is definitely not obsolete in any way! Not to say it wouldn't be great to have the individual level controls of the v2, but it sounds great to me. (I listen to stereo-to-surround, or QS, both with the Involve setting. SQ records not so much.)
