I second that too, Brunk. I would be happy with the Amp in the Teac, but the Bryston was around and the HD 800 sounds so much better balanced. I am looking around for an Audeze LCD 2 which I seem to have read somewhere that works well with it.
I've been downloading DSD versions of music that I had on High res, and I find that the the HR versions initially sound clearer and better spaced, but the DSD versions sound righter, with better flow. Imagine an spiky curve versus a smooth one of the same impulse.
I wonder if it does sound as good as the Mytek,(at least with DSD) as Valenroy says. Anyone with a Mytek in the L.A. area up for a comparison?
Oh, and I got to compare it with the Mydac, which I had lying around, and there is no doubt that they both sound right in their own ways, but the edge goes to the Teac for the warmth from the Muses. Its double the price of the Mydac, of course, with the built in amp and DSD, which is a biggie.
