Nice- so ultimately both c5d and the (new) c5 would sound similar?
I say (new) C5 as I had the first generation 2.2 output impedance one with only one bass switch. I sent my C5 to JDS labs for them to add the stepped bass to it. I'm very curious on what the new C5 would sound with my dunu dn-2000s. I'd assume the extra output impedance of the first generation c5 would contribute a bit to its brightness (despite the 16ohm impedance rating it had.) would the lower output impedance of the new C5 remove this brightness (which I do like to an extent)?
