    Not exactly. Some people like the display on and the pretty graphics. Others, turn it off entirely. “Critical Listening Mode is a feature that allows the user to defeat any background tasks and circuitry that are non-essential to playing...

    Headphone outputs as in headphone XLR? No. The new Esoteric N-05XD may work. Wouldn’t you come out of the DAC into the pre and then output to the various headphone amps? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Two channel preamps? Yes. We use a two channel preamp exclusively with the MSB since we have more than once source. Our favorites are Block Audio, Boulder 2110, Soulution 725.

    Seeing the music rotating on a platine is half the experience. Without that half it's tough to adapt in the dark. Romance can do that to music lovers. The music no matter the format is alive. It's part of human nature.
