Just curious Zanth, why would you order the Compass when you're already expecting the Ref 1?
Ref 1 = home system
I am at work or at school about 12-16 hours a day, particularly while I am at work, I like to listen to music with the Westone ES3X's. Presently, my situation is horrid. Straight out of the Macbook Pro I have horrible hiss, straight out of my iPod and I omit my massive FLAC collection. Compass means I get to have my cake and eat it too.
Ref 1 is a no brainer for home use
