I owned a CEtrance DACmini for about a year and finally sold it since I felt it lacked ultimate transparency and seemed to be somewhat soft in the upper treble region. Not so with the Deckard. I would not call the Deckard bright though. It seems neutral, similar to my reference DACs (BelCanto DAC3 and Bryston BDA-2).
