as beautiful as the cups on the headphones are, the 1/4 inch jack is what has me captivated, most companies just give the normal crappy plastic/rubber, but those look amazing!

AMB Sigma 25. Kind of like a baby Sigma 11 for the y2, since I normally use optical (though I'm USB right now given the housing situation for convenience).

FiiO L9 arrived, and BIG surprise, doesn't fit my otterbox. the corners on one side stick out. is it safe to file down the edges?

The y2 is a nice little unit, kind of miss mine. Sold it a couple months ago due to a case of "upgraditis" and I haven't yet found anything that I can comfortably say is a clear 'night-and-day' upgrade. From a value standpoint it's got a pretty high return (which is to be expected given its DIY nature). Yeah there are certain things that some DACs may do better, but they come at quite a premium, and the y2 can still stand toe to toe with them in some other areas. IME, you don't start seeing clear upgrades until you get in the price range of twice the price of the y2.

Maybe take the plastic shell off so you don't damage the internals?

Update on the L9. After many ages of scrapping against a diamond reinforced titanium chisel, i have finally been able to smooth the edges enough to push it into my otterbox with the strength of 10,000 adult alpha-male elephants. It sounds great though. MMMMM MILES DAVIS.

How would you describe the sound signature of the TEAC? Been reading around, but  can't seem to pin down where on the spectrum its sound signature lands.

Bright, but not analytical. It seems to resolve better than my Bifrost, and instrument separation is very good. MIdrange seems excellent as vocals through my LCD-3's really shine, and so far the TH-900's do not seem to be demonstrating the recessed mids some complain of, and were evident to me with my LA7000/BiFrost pairing.

 

So far I'm really liking the UD-501, and the headamp drives the TH-900 beautifully.
