Yeah I have to kind of temper my opinions on new gear because I tend to have a always prefer the old sound I'm more familiar with. When I moved from the 106D to the Soloist I hated the presentation, but came to appreciate its strengths. Same notion holds true for the DACmini vs Soloist, I find myself noticing some grain/etch in the treble on the DACmini that makes it more fatiguing over time, and also more mid-range detail in the Burson. These things aren't really swaying my choice though as I find the differences minor. The more time spent with the gear you just happen to pick up these little idiosyncrasies.
