Its more neutral than warm, but it does have a hint of warmth, just a hint.
If you want warm, investigate the D18. But there really isnt a viable reason youd get the D18 over the DA8 other than the cost. The DA8 is superior in every way. The sq, usb, and a capable amp that youd have a hard time topping within the 500.00 mark. Its a great all-in-one solution as well as a foundation for a killer rig (DA8 in 'pure dac' mode)
