Oh really? Okay, makes sense to leave it the way it is then.

I can accept that the Sennheiser HEV90 is high-end, but is the HEV90's DAC high-end? wavoman, you probably use the Wadia to feed the HEV90?

There should be a prize for the most obscure DAC in captivity.

huh? when was the HEV90 considered a 'hi-end' DAC? I know it's expensive but is it truly hi-end?

Yea I know everyone makes fun of the DAC in the HEV90. But I put a low-jitter SPDIF 44.1 feed into it, threw the switch, and it sounded great. Better than the DAC built in to the CDP (a Bang & Olufsun, no slouch). It was easy to wire this as a direct A/B comparison. What can I say? I plan to have others listen to it when we do a mini-meet here, and we can collect some other views. My high-end hearing isn't what it used to be.
