I don't understand the muddy/soft comments regarding the 430HD, having compared it to a Hugo + Ragnarok, I found it to be musical while retaining dynamics and detail. I do however use the iFi iUSB (+ linear PSU) and iFi Gemini cable, which I've found works wonders for the sonics in question. Which is why I'm tempted by the OffRamp 5, supposed to be the best converter on the market. Again, this is with the Abyss. Wonderful synergy.
