Default Boulder 812

This soon to be released product is checking all of the boxes for me. I recently confirmed a $8850 price and expected shipping of late April. Network, ROON endpoint, UPnP, DAC, and pre-amplifier. Plus 2 sets of balanced analog inputs.

Looks great. A competitor to the Bryston BR20 streamer/pre-amp. Looks like the Boulder will require a separate phono stage whereas the Bryston offers an internal modular unit.

Having a phono pre-amp handling low voltage signals in there might be pushing it too much. When I get to phono, I am thinking to add the Boulder 508. At these price points, I will only purchase a US designed and manufactured product. I also want the option for a moving coil cartridge.

Definitely want to hear the 812 when it comes out. Checking all the boxes and Boulder product no less. Price will be near the Chord Hugo TT2 with M Upscaler and want to hear that too!

I listened to Audiophyle Style Podcast featuring Boulder and the Boulder Reps said they will also have an 800 series 50W stereo amp that will pair up with the 812. These two boxes could make for a very good 2 channel office system (or even main system) with some Wilson Tune Tot's or other speakers of the like.
