A little update here, I am at about 120 hours or so....it is by far the best DAC I have heard to date. I really am trying to find any fault I can to be balanced about my impressions but really there aren't any that I have found yet. With high quality recordings this thing just astounds me, way to go Antelope!
Hopefully 6moons puts at least 150 hours on it before reviewing, maybe I got used to sound...or maybe it broke in, who knows. But at 120 hours or so on mine, I am thoroughly loving the music.
You're gonna make this wait even harder... lol.
Anyway, really looking forward to your review!
6 moons should have plenty of burn-in before their review as they say they're in the process of moving. Will be interesting to hear what they say as well.
I'm almost considering the Zodiac+ right now as money really isn't the issue but I don't need all the features...
Can I ask you for a vague qualitative answer to the difference in sound between the headphone out and balanced through the Violectric?
