Awesome news, I’d take a fully assembled one. How do I know if I’m (still) on the list?It’s like Xmas in spring...

Really good work there! They're a bit outside my price range and I'm already using an AWE 64 Gold, so I'm good. But I'm looking forward to see the review videos from those who are ordering one 😀

Congrats ~

As far as the gift thing goes, doing it for commercial reasons is eventually going to get PPs attention and can lead to account suspension since it is against their usage policy. It is why I do all my PP things through invoices.

Want to see some real photos of NQS (pre-release sample)?
Here you go:
Front view

Persp view

Green glued element near Wave Blaster header is fixed in release version. Also the PCB will be matte black, just as 2nd prototype (Rev. 1.10).

How many will be available, and what would be needed to make another batch in the future? I am just feeling paranoid, because I desperately need one of these cards! I check my email every day for updates, and put my retrobox on hold until I know if I can get one (I do have the cash.)

A fantastic card, it packs everything I want. I hope you will be able to produce enough and therefore have the opportunity to buy it (it was possible I would have already ordered it). However, the most sincere congratulations. Little curiosity, what software should you use to manage the card? Unisound or Creative Drivers? Thank you
