The 3SE is very detailed, each musician is easily distinguished from the other, the instruments distinct and extremley identifiable. With the DAC19 there is not this so you tend to listen to the music as a whole and not focus on one musician of the band so it gives better PRat, but this is highly subjective. The 3SE is clearly superior technically. I sold my DAC19, and should have a ref1 for comparison next week.
