I did (I missed them) and added the L3000 leather pads...  I'm also on my 3rd pair of SA5Ks and 2nd pair of HD800s...

I have the Pure i20 as well and really think highly of it.  Nice looking rig you got there.

So far i think its a total steal for $849. It has tons of options to tweak the sound to your liking, or be pure as possible. It doesnt get very hot, is built like a tank too. I'm still burning it in, but my initial impression is that its a new standard that's in the < $1k category. Even the built in headphone amp (100mw/32ohms) is quite impressive. Teac did a fine job on cost/performance here with additional options unknown in this price range.

 

Unfortunately I have not heard their matching amp, I am too satisfied with my 5yr warrantied Mjolnir :)

Thanks Hodgjy, its been quite a journey full of fine equipment to get it where its at of what I believe to be the best price/performance all-rounder to my ears (throw in the HE-5LE too lol).

How is it compared to the D18? I've had my eye on the Teac for quite some time, but haven't heard many experiences about it.

I'm still letting the Teac burn in, but the D18 is going to have some competition for sure. I can say it sounds grain free and dynamic, it startled me a few times with classical already. The D18 is smoother and sweeter, losing a bit of that top end sparkle, making long sessions non-problematic.

My kids are on Spring Break with friends over, so I escaped to the Garage for some quiet time with the Th-900s and the Signature DJ's. biggrin.gif

Exactly... That's one reason I got the DAC/Amp Combo. It's easy to move it around when necessary. wink.gif
