A DAC/ headphone amp may be.
And accept clock input too.

The curve of the front panel reminds me of dCS styling.

Looks like N-01XD but with e headphone amp built in. My guess is something like the dCS Bartok, that comes in two versions, with and without headphone amp / output built in. Just a guess

I think so too . I prefer the older style a bit better , Less futuristic look to my eyes .

I'm intrigued by the 4-pin XLR on the front. It does seem like this could be an all-in-one steamer/DAC/preamp/headphone amp like the dCS Bartok or Boulder unit that is in the works.

Visual seems to fit with the Grandioso front design with the swoops (not to my minimalist taste).
