O.K. I received my Dacmini from the CEntrance shop 4 days ago. I wanted to listen over an extended period of time before offering my impressions. The CEntrance "Boys" did a great job, once again. I had a scratchy noise when turning the volume knob that irritated me. Michael, Kenny, and David All emailed me with updates along the way. They informed me they now have a new volume pot that meets their Quality Control specs and that's what I got. They also installed the 1 ohm output impedance mod and tightened up the selector knob. On top of that, they covered all this Out of Warranty because I sent my Dacmini in once before for the same problem and because of the 4 week wait while they tested the new volume pot. If that was not enough, they did not charge me for the 1 ohm mod. Talk about Customer Service Excellence! These guys have been great to deal with; super fast communication, top notch service, and nice guys to boot.
Now, for the sound. Auditory memory is ephemeral and subject to placebo and Halo Effects. All I can say is that the sound quality I'm hearing from my Audeze LCD2's and modded T50RPs is magic. I have a good friend who heard my Dacmini paired with my LCD2's. He sold his Stax Lambda's and bought the Dacmini + LCD2's within the same week. He recently bought a Benchmark HD and we had a mini shootout. We took turns switching out the Dacmini and Benchmark paired with our LCD2's and my modded T50RP's. Neither of us could tell one amp from the other.
The Dacmini is not only a great product but from a great company.
