Congratulations! = ) Used to own this DAC and it's definitely nice for the price, and I bet that I paid more for it than you did. ;D What you think of it so far?

Thanks. I do not have any other DACs to compare with the MF M1 but feel that most comments about this DAC on Headfi and other forums have been pretty spot on. The sound has good detail and is accurate and precise. Bass is lean and tight. The DAC is used on a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 headphones and the sound is quite stellar to my ears.
Although I have not listened to other costlier DACs in the $1000 to $2000 price range, I personally feel the MF M1 DAC represents great value for the money in producing a clean and accurate sound. It may not be the most revealing and transparent but is quite neutral in its presentation. I avoided the Rega DAC as from my previous experience with Rega gear(Elicit, Brio3, Apollo) I find them to exhibit a sonic signature that gives them a distinct house sound, a colouration of some sort. Some folks may prefer this sound though.
