Yeah it's quite high end for $1000. Exceptional off of the USB. I still don't know how they managed to throw everything in for $1000 and still make it sound at the same level as other high end DACs. I love the presentation of this. Not laid back, not too aggressive. It's in the middle yet still engaging. They pulled it off just right. The bass is very tight with the D2000. I was coming the Marantz PM6004 with tone control and Fiio E10 for the D2000, so the bass was a bit thicker, although not as precise as the Source. I'm already getting adjusted to it. The treble is the hardest thing to get right. All the details and air without sounding aggressive.
