Agreed. My experience is the same. Even with sub optimal sources (iPhone via Analog input) it manages to make the T1 sound fun and lively.
Not as detailed as some other full sized desktop setups, but definitely a good match. As good as Pan Am > LCD 2 even. Of course the sound signature will be different, but in terms of enjoyability, The Pan Am>T1 and Pan Am>LCD 2 is about equal.
