Yes, we got an award too. The Minerva DAC is discontinued but still available... in the form of the DAC2.
And some very nice words by Mr. Herbie Hancock

CES, Las Vegas: Weiss introduces three new products aimed at the playback of high resolution files from a computer or network player:
The ATT202 Passive Attenuator
The ATT202 is a fully passive, stepped, resistive attenuator for balanced or unbalanced stereo signals. It can be used in place of a preamplifier to control the volume of a single source like e.g. a D/A converter.
It can be remote controlled which makes it very attractive for convenient operation.
Read more about this extraordinary attenuator here.
The INT202 Firewire Interface
The INT202 is a small interface box for Firewire to AES/EBU and S/PDIF conversion. In addition the audio volume can be controlled in the digital domain via an infrared remote control unit. The INT202 finds its application in interfacing a PC or MAC computer to a D/A Converter unit. With the volume control feature it can also replace a preamplifier.
Read more about the INT202 here.
The DAC202 Firewire D/A Converter
The DAC202 is a State Of The Art Firewire D/A converter with IR Remote Control, headphone output, LCD display and many more features.
