I think something is wrong with NCIX's stock management system. I ordered it thursday and they billed my CC the next day, but have not shipped yet.

I too got billed but no email about shipment or anything.

NCIX has been slipping as of late. Not sure if its just cause I ordered a lot in December, but rarely did things work out 100%.

This is NCIX's busiest time of the year, and when do your staff want holidays? Christmas time of course. I recommend patience. I look forward to hearing about this card when you folks do receive them.

Interestingly, I received a shipping notice last night and recieved the card only 15 hours later (from the other side of the country). I've only tested it with my Audio Technica A900's so far, but it seems very good. The treble peaks of lesser digital sources make me grit my teeth a bit, but the Essence's highs are smooth without losing detail. Very nice. Can't wait to try it with my main system.

I'm loving it so far. The bass is very crisp and punchy and the mids are heard better as well. The highs I can't really tell a difference with so far (compared to my Corda 3MOVE) but thats not a bad thing either as I wouldn't want them any more forward then they are really.
