I'm sure I don't know nearly all there is to know as far as tube distortions, so my comment may not be worth much. This is one great big learning experience ;D

please say what you think compared to b52. if it is even close thats amazing.
i have had many headamps and dacs. i have tried quite a few lately. between the cs and dac1 i don't see why i need anything else.
the dac1 "plays it as it is" the cs "plays nice". i just don't think you can get both types of sound from the same component. it is not possible if you think about it. so i have two boxes that do either type of the most sought after sounds nicely. maybe not the best but i am done for a while at least.
i don't even really feel the need to buy any more headphones any time soon.
i am going to spend my time listening for once.
sure, you can do better but big time diminishing returns are going to kick in. i think if you were to own a dac1 with balanced 650's and a cs with 701's you have it all for the most part. plus you didn't have to apologize to your wallet more than once
