If it weren't shrill, it would be the perfect opamp, and we would have had the best amp in the world in our pockets, and there would be no market for fancy amps at 10 or 20 times the cost. If it had no flaws, why would anyone look for anything better at all.
I am perfectly happy with my NON-shrill stock D1 and Penguin 8397 amp, with Ultrasone HFI700DVD and Sennheiser HD600. Are they not full size HiQ cans? My D1 is only getting the 8397's in the buffer sockets, and the OPA2111 in the amp socket. The Penguin Royal is my only amp with AD8397 as far as I know, and it is NOT shrill.

I only mentioned the ER6i because if the AMP is shrill, the ER6i don't like them. My Tomahawk makes the ER6i worse, and I don't hear anyone esle call that one shrill. I do know shrill - I will not for for Shrillery Clinton for example.

PS: rolling the opamps is only for curiosity sake, not because of dissatisfaction with the sound. If I don't keep an open mind I can never hear anything better than what I have, staying satisfied and complacent with the old...

I hear nothing shrill in the presentation using the AD8397's in the D1, using the HD650's, PROline 750's or anything else I have tried. I did not like them at first but since they settled in the sound is quite enjoyable.

I would say around 6 days, if what I have been reading and the time it took to receive mine hold up. Mine took 3.

Just replaced the DAC (8616) and AMP (823) opamps both with 2132.

Voila! The shrill is gone. The thing that had been bothering me the most
regarding the D1.

Now I can listen even with my RS-1.

My daily rig is

iRiver H120 -> iBasso D1 -> Shure E500

Bliss, finally...

Two scenarios:

1. One of the units had a problem and I needed a replacement.
2. I am going balance!
