Check a bit down on page н¨ÍøÒ³ 1 . You will see the price for single and dual earth/sun/moon and the cost of shipping to the right.

The Sun V1 had a harsh treble and bloated bass (from memory). After a few people wrote up their experiences, Audio-gd re-designed it.

I recall, by the way, someone saying that the bass was reduced in their Zero DAC using 3 HDAMs, which might be a sign of not enough power. I wouldn't be surprised if a similar issue arose using a HDAM on a computer sound card. However, LM4562, which I've seen on a few sound cards (not sure if that's stock or installed by the user) is quite bass-heavy so a HDAM might sound less so.

My prelude which came with the 4562 was a little bass heavy. There is a little less bass with the moon which is good. Music is more balanced now. Bass is tighter and a lot smoother. I have about 90-100 hours on it now. There is a lot less harshness in the upper registers. Midrange is warm and very smooth. Before the hdam my prelude wasn't a good match for my HD580s with my tube amp. This thing has kept me from having to buy a DAC. I wonder if upgrading my 600 watt psu would make even more of a difference.
