You are correct.

OK, this seems as good as any thread to discuss the D10. I just received mine and the SQ seems a bit on the "tizzy" and thin side. I know it does not help to use Grado 60's but am I mistaken? Is this DAC/Amp jacked up on the high-end? I'm currently listening to some Jackson Brown, his double live/acoustic set and I never heard the sibilance as I do with the D10. My other amps/Dac are DacMagic and a Benchmark with Senn 650's and a LD IVSE. It still is new, less than 10 hours but there is an unmistaken high-end bent that does not lend itself to a warm, mellow, round sound that I enjoy. Or is it that I have been listening to the the 650's too long?

Let it burn in for a while before making any real judgements on the sound. It will probably change a bit.

I like your characterization of a "bit". This is precisely my feeling when it comes to burning in electronics...a bit is all that anyone can expect with an electronic device other than mechanical speakers.
So...am I reading too much into your reply to assume that yes, this DAC/Amp is a "bit" tizzy?

I think usually what happens is you get more used to the sound, and it may change some also at the same time. Listen to it for a week and by the end of the week you'll be saying, 'wow it sounds a lot better.' But, it would be interested if you can compare it to your other devices after that week to see if your observation is still the same.

how do you have your D10 set up? are you using the dac too or just the amp? what are you using as a source to feed the D10? using usb or optical/coax?

if you're using a comp, try playing around with the settings (if you're using foobar or winamp). it should sound fine with little to no sibilance especially on the SR60.

OK, will do. I'll report back but...I am usually not wrong when it comes to SQ given my 40 plus years of throwing money at audio equipment. Old ears but still sensitive...

Good questions...currently using USB from PC with iTunes...Dac and Amp with Grado 60's. I made certain that all settings are optimized. I'm about to switch to a portable CD player via optical and then move on to a Little Dot CD deck via coax. I have other source combos to try. However, my intent was to use the D10 as a portable device (Dac/Amp) with a netbook, the current environment. BTW, the netbook's (Asus HE1000) internal audio output is terrific!!! Plenty of volume, no noise and a warm sound to my liking. In fact, this netbook sounds better than any other Dell PC or laptop I own.
