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 :)
