It takes some experience to differentiate between DACs and to appreciate the better ones. I remember when I used to tell people that I couldn't hear much of a difference between my Fiio E17 and Dacport LX. That was foolish and I didn't know what to look for when evaluating DACs. Now DACs make a huge difference for me. As you can see I spent much more on my DAC than my amp, almost  as much as my HE-500. Once you start to appreciate it there is no going back. Initially you might not hear much of a difference but give it some time and the Bifrost will be well worth your money eventually. Without the Concero in my chain everything sounds smeared and veiled to me now.

Yeah, I went to that page before asking the question, I just didn't and still don't see anything about a filter setting, thanks for 'splaining to me!

Um, if you read the review I referenced there is a whole section on the filters...

this link: http://www.head-fi.org/t/634760/resonessence-labs-concero-discussion-review-thead

Here is the first sentence from the section on filters:

"FILTERS

A key feature of the Concero is the selectable filter options. The included Apple remote is used to cycle through - initial setting is no upsampling, followed by a minimum-phase IIR filter, and then a linear-phase apodizing filter." - by project86
 
It's a pretty extensive review.

Somehow I missed the link to the review and only saw and clicked the link to the manufacturers page, it was late....

Thanks again for the info

With the HD650, I honestly couldn't tell apart the ODAC and the Bifrost. IMO, not worth it in your position.

I m thinking about buying a lyr and a bifrost to match my lcd 2 and a beyer t90, is it a good combination?

For LCD-2s, absolutely! Haven't heard the Beyers though, so not sure about that pairing.
