As much as the amp is good, I think the DAC is its most proficient part. As has been said in this thread, its DAC is amazing; it is dual, meaning a few modifications and it could be balanced, has great chips and very low noise in the DAC circuit. The headphone output isn't perfect for highly sensitive balanced armature earphones, but it is very good.
