The Zodiac+ is really impressing me. It makes sense that Igor calls it 'Acoustically focused clocking'. It's so accurate, detailed, extended & neutral yet really musical IMO. I usually love big bass and enjoy color however I want nothing more from this precise signature.
I went all out on the amp too and bought a Leben cs300XS. Ouch. Should arrive in a couple of weeks, I follow up then.
This will be my setup:
Laptop/vista/Foobar2000-> Axis usb cable-> Sonicweld diverter 24/96 -> Blackcat Veloce SPDIF (Stereovox)-> Zodiac+-> TWag interconnects-> Leben CS300XS ->LCD-2's (saphirePro recable).
I might have to change my underpants.
