Anyone run their bridge with foobar? For some reason, unless I upsample everything to 24bit, the PWD is showing lossless (be it Flac or m4a) as MP3. I don't mind the on-the-fly conversion to wav, but I don't see why it should upsample to a higher bit rate. Incidentally, JRiver, gives me no such problem and plays everything in its native format and file type.
Next week I'll run over to audiodoctor over in Jersey City and see if the Aurilac Vega is all it's cracked up to be. If so, it or the Levi will be my next splurge after the 009 comes in a few weeks.
Lately, I've been feeling the PWD can be a little rough in the treble and gets a little splashy with my HE6 (CSP2+ > Odyssey Stratos Plus). On this note, I've been using 2.41 and so far pleasantly surprised. I need more time to be sure, but early impressions show an added spaciousness (think Z), less grain and smoother transients. Take this with a grain of salt, particularly as I was initially pleased with PL09 too (coming from PL05).
