Cambridge Audio Azur 651A Integrated Amplifier

Anybody know about the not-yet-released  Cambridge Audio Azur 651A Integrated Amplifier?  I know Cambridge also makes a nice DAC, but they don't mention anything about whether or not they're using the same technology as their DacMagic in it.  (You'd expect they'd advertise that if they were.)

I'm wondering whether it would be good to wait for this amplifier, or get another less-expensive amplifier + external DAC (looking for an equivalent cost for the combination).

By the way, I luckily got a pair of B&W Nautilus 805 speakers, and am looking to run a CD player and MacBook through them.

It appears that the digital input is limited to

USB audio 1.0 16-bit 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz and as they show a setup with the 651A with the DacMagicPlus I'm guessing the DAC in the 651A is not comparable to the DacMagic.
