HRT Microstreamer DAC section?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm just about to jump the gun on the HRT Microstreamer. I hear nothing but stellar reviews, and it fits my need for a DAC/Amp combo to drive my Grados. I hear the amp section has a little musicality to it, which is good (I'll be driving it out of there for a while), but when I get my first tube amp, I'd like to use this as a DAC for it. Yes, this'll be the best DAC I've ever owned :P but I'm wondering, how colored is the DAC? I don't want to put too much coloration on my music, and I fear the tubes+warm dac+Grados will skew the sound to much. So, for those who've used it as such, how neutral is the DAC section of the HRT Microstreamer? (Comparisons are welcome, I've owned/heard several DACs and amps in the past)

It's voiced neutrally. I compared it with my Valab and the microStreamer is clearer with better dynamics and deeper bass.

@wes008: Please post your impressions of this amp/DAC. Are you pleased or disappointed with your purchase?
