Thanks.

The offerings from Dyson audio and Venus audio are both exactly what you're looking for.

I'd listened to 320kbps MP3's with my just acquired Gustard H10 + X12 DAC stack, first with my Audeze LCD2.2 nF, then with my HE500. Maybe my preference has shifted, I seem to favor slightly brighter sounding cans...and the HE500 sounds divine on the Gustard stack. Bass seem to have a little more authority, mids and highs has greater presence (compared to my previous stack - Schiit Lyr + iFi Nano iDSD). The LCD2.2 didn't sound so good.....it sounded veiled mids-wise, good bass and nice treble. Perhaps it doesn't jell well with the Gustard stack, or my preference has shifted (as I'd stated) or the Gustard needs some breaking in. Oddly enough, with the Gustard and for my planar mag cans, I prefer the HE500 and HE400i over the LCD2.2 and modded Fostex T50RP with Alpha Pads. Haven't tried my Alpha Dog with the Gustard yet. Anyway, listening to Enya's Greatest Hits with the HE500 and thoroughly enjoying it.

Thank you. Bookmarked both of them for future reference.
