Loving this device as a source. Fantastic sound customization (if you're into that kind of thing), very clean sounding input, good separation, bass response is tight yet deep. No detectable hiss is coming from the internal amp.
This source is definitely comparable to the 3GS (which is saying a lot, if you do a quick search on these forums).
I'm yet to AB the two sources. But performance with my westone 3 so far is impressive.
Also: I'm not detecting any sort of "loudness" auto eq, I'm unsure if this issue is firmware specific or not.
