Just got mine in the mail an hour ago. It needs time to break in, and I've only listened for an hour, but...
Detailed, somewhat sweet yet clinical, something up with the sound-stage... Is that from not being broken in? Lemme check...
Plugged into my home stereo through the line out... Oh!!!!!! Holy ****! Instrument separation is amazing--excellent tonality without blending instrument timbres together. 3D images... I can hear the violinists turning their instruments. Tonally, it blooms softly in the lower midrange, but is dry above while not straying too far from an "open" resonance. I don't have the headphones to pull off this kind of soundstage, and my etys are broken. This thing is gonna drive some people crazy, the way a $500 CD player does. It does some things very well, so you expect it to get everything right. But it just doesn't work like that in this price range.
That's all for now. I'm gonna go listen some more. Will be back in a few weeks after I break it in.
