    Wow, that's a lot of DAC for the $$ Joe! Great reviews too. Curious about the Lampi it was compared to...

    I love this dac. Killer performance for the money. Still breaking in but sounds great.

    Awesome Joe, I may just go ahead. What DACs does it compete with you've had in? Best, Art

    I don't want to say too much right now, only because it only has a few hours on it. But, honestly. It definitely competes with the best that I've had. My memory of the Lampi has faded a little and think the Lampi was/is a little sweeter but overall, this seems more neutral, for lack of a better word but has lots of air, and dimension. I'll need a few days to live with it. I am so surprised at what has been achieved at this price point.

    Enjoy her Joe.

    And while I've been absent of late, I'm always watching from the shadows. It seems that you and Tom have come across a winner. Where's Norman by the way when one needs his opinion on said DACs at this price?.

    Happier New Year to all of you by the way.
