I think it's a good-great combo actually. For those who I find the T5p slightly bright (I'm not in that camp), the combination w the TEAC works because I find the TEAC dac slightly rolled off in the treble (i.e. not bright, slightly warm). Listening to Roger Waters - Pros & Cons... on Spotify (320k) - good detail retrieval, balanced bass & smooth highs. Recommended with the usual caveats (i.e. ymmv).
