Just wanted to add that I've salvaged elevation feet from an old tape deck, and it has drastically lowered the temperature of the underside! Granted I had installed the DP1 on a wooden desk, but still I like it much cooler ^^
I could use 1" high silver feet in order to match the color of the DP1 case, but so far so good
I've also compared the DP1 to a few other units today, and it was a blood bath tbh...of course, these were quite cheaper so it'd only make sense to compare the DP1 against other similarly priced units I guess. I'll try to make this happen in my pending review. This said, the 6moons review hit the nail right on the head so it's gonna be tough to not paraphrase it.
And I'm still not sold on upsampling of lossless music, I prefer to upsample lossy audio movies only to 24/192 directly within Reclock...so I don't have to keep pushing the "upsample" button, and one upsampling pass is more than enough. Surround soundtracks become hard to believe w/ the combination of the uber-low XMOS board jitter, the clearer sounding after-effect of 192kHz upsampling and the astonishingly 3D sounding output stage of the DP1, that's fosho!
Bottom line is: don't listen to the DP1 if you can't afford it. That's the very reason why I never went to demo the latest pj's from JVC, coz I know they have CRT-like native CR but also other drawbacks I'm not willing to settle w/(misconvergence due to having 3 discrete panels, poor CMS, very poor ANSI contrast, etc..). Still, once you've seen a live JVC I guess it must be impossible to erase its CRT-like native CR off your brain...same story w/ the DP1, it'd break your heart
PS: these might be perfect w/ some dual sided thermal tape and a disc of acoustic foam underneath: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Aviation-grade-Aluminum-Audio-Case-Isolation-Feet-01-/260880240840
