I agree, I just got three of them for my Zhaolu 2.0 and they are very nice sounding indeed. I find they are of the classic BB sound and it seems like they fall somewhere between an OPA2604 and OPA627 in my experience. Don't have a lot of experience with BB opamps ouside of 627/637/2604. I am hearing greater detail and resolution compared to the 2604 (which is a opamp I like) with a bit tighter bass that's also noticeably deeper. The treble is well open and airy and reminds me more of the 627 being liquid and smoother but tends to be just a bit less focused than the 2604 it seems - not 100% sure yet on that though. Air, space, ambiance and tonal character is quite nice. Seems to sit right at home with my Zhaolu, Mapletree Ear+ Purist and HF-1's.
