Oddly, the right channel in my Pagoda DAC went out about a week ago; I think it might have something to do with my power amplifier as; my amplifier had an RCA input jack that was loose and I kept having to "jiggle" it to get the sound to work ... I'm not sure how these things work but messing with that RCA on the amplifier might have sent some aberrant "static" back to the DAC and might have blown the right channel ...   That said ...I emailed MHDT about it and they had...
 The perfect description.  MHDT Lab should adopt that as their official slogan.   In fact, your impressions echo my own pretty much exactly and across the board.
 The SE535's come with "medium" black olive tips installed on them ... And like yourself, I'm pretty average when it comes to head/ear size ... and I've always found the "medium" foam tips (black olives) to work best for me ... The large works for me too but the mediums offer the best insertion depth and isolation ...

 I am not the expert on this but I've read around quite a bit and am acquainted with a couple people who do happen to know a lot about these PCM56P DAC chips ... and I wouldn't trust any PCM56P-K's to be genuine unless buying direct from some place like Mouser Electronics (who describe the K grade PCM56P's as "unavailable" )... Ebay sellers and even more so Amazon sellers are most likely selling counterfeit chips which in the end will most likely be worse than the J grade...
