Any point in bypassing any of the capacitors in the Anedio D2 with high quality film caps?? I'd be looking to increase the smoothness and/or warmth of the rear RCA outputs

No reply as of yet from viper2001; does anyone else know any info on bypassing caps in the Anedio D2 with film caps??

It now sounds more like the Calyx did when I used the Audiophilleo and Vaunix hub -- "lighter" than the Master 7.

With optical I believe I had to raise the volume at a higher level, but after I connected the usb and thought I had the volume at low level then to find out it was blasting.  Also, the treble doesn't sound thick and bright, it sounds tamed.  With the optical connection, the treble sounded disconnected from the upper mids, not much transition.  Then again, this is another day, and yesterday my ears could have been treble sensivite, but it was definately brighter than Hugo.  


Actually, it's still the same as yesterday, more treble forward than I like, must have been some placebo when I first heard it.
