Plugging the crack directly to my laptop's headphone out, one thing really obvious is that now I can hear noise ('hiss') pretty loudly. It was dead silent with the MSII+, even with the crack volume cranked all the way up.

I should add, I have no other DAC to compare against (except the onboard sound card from my laptop), and the crack was speedballed (which might or might not explain the super tight, deep, and punchy bass).
