Thanks for the info about your DAC! I figured that would be the case... I'm already starting to see a difference, but I was wondering if it was not my mind/ears playing tricks on me (to alleviate the pain of a potentially wasted investment )... I'll keep going for at least a couple of weeks before making up my mind... That's why I labeled the thread as an impressions thread, not a review thread.
  Is there any obvious reason why that wouldn't work? I thought about doing that yesterday, but I couldn't think of a way to configure the unit to do that... Input selection is either line in or DAC...
Comments anyone? (Bump)
Like promised, I just posted my first impressions of the unit in a new thread, for those interested.
I received my Audio-gd Compass 2 yesterday (default build with the 2 free TCXOs... not sure what those are supposed to change to the sound, but hey: they were free!), and I thought I would publish a summary of first impressions I got with the unit.   While reading this post, keep in mind that I am still a neophyte audiophile and as such, I will try to do my best to describe what I hear in my own words. I am looking forward to reading about what other owners think...
Went ahead and ordered the Compass 2. Hope It'll be worth it! Thanks to all who gave suggestions! I'll report my impressions here when I receive the amp.

Hi,   I started a thread trying to find the best amp/DAC combo to get for my HD650 for around +-500$. The more I read, the more my preconceived opinions change. I read on Head-Fi and Headphonia that the HD650 and the BottleHead Crack are really a stellar combination, but of all the threads I read praising that combination, not many of them would suggest what DAC to pair them with. I need optical and USB inputs for any DAC I would purchase.   Any suggestions? (And...
Hi Matt,   I see that you own the HD650 and the LYR, how is that for a combination? Are you satisfied? I'm not too familiar with hybrids... How does it compare to tube or solid state amps?   Thanks
I had not looked at it yet, but now that you mentioned it I went on to read its full description on Audio-gd's website. With all the connectivity it supports and all the possible upgrade options it allows and considering all the positive reviews and feedback I read about Audio-gd products... I have to say this just took the #1 spot on my list! Thanks a lot for pointing out that model to me, as with all the availed models, I might have missed it altogether without your...
