So far it is the best I've heard the 8As sound. That is even in comparison to my Triad L3/Firestone PSU paired with my DACport LX (via silver cable RCA to 1/4 Jack). So taking into account that that is $1,200 set up vs $150.00 player and I feel the player sounds better with the 8As lol. Otherwise I don't think the 8As sound that great for music to be honest. But paired with the N1 (on the Wooduo preset) they most definitely sound great for music ;). Still waiting on Hisound to release a needed firmware update to address volume control issues (too loud on the lowest setting IMO) and also to address fade in issues for FLAC files.
