Sure yeah it's improved. Power supply/regulation, additional crossfeed, digital volume control and 3 step gain settings, but the overall design of the amp section is similar. I asked him the same question and other than the improved/added features everything else is similar.

 

Besides, how can you hear a "cleaner" sound when it's already clean? I was thinking the difference must have come from listening with 2 different opamps. But then hearing differences is a matter of subjective opinion.

There is a difference with a lower noise floor and cleaner power to the source. The Fiio X5 is a really good example of this and it shows through with its crazy micro-detailing & low noise floor. If you cannot hear that or haven't experienced that then there really is no point in dragging this on with you. Connecting my Triad L3 to its power supply vs the batteries is a huge difference (blacker background, more dynamic, bigger sound staging, improved separation/imaging, deeper bass. The better your sources & headphones/IEMs are, the more apparent those differences will be (IMO).

What attracted me to buy this at first was the cross feed functionality and base on the fact that the UHA 6s Mk2 was well received. I received my UHA760 on Christmas Eve last year .... After a few months of listening to it feel that for the price tag it should have been much better (OPA627). I paired it with AK120 and 1964 ears quads with the gain on low with high cross feed. The crossfeed does help a bit but not greatly with the channel inbalance in IEMs or whatever you call it . When paired with my Audeze Lcd 2.2 on high gain I would require the volume knob to be at around 3'o clock when listening to rock or blues . When listening to some classical pieces I would have to crank the volume up to almost max volume. I feel that the power could have been better but that might compromise the extremely low noise floor which I absolutely love.

I like the RE-272's with Meier house sound.  Was going to sell the 760 until I tried them with my Blox M2c's.  I really like what I was hearing.  Have to keep it now.  Source is USB out from Surface 2.  Sweetness.

I posted a long, non informative, hard to read review on the 760(needless say, in a poor english). viewer discretion's advised. if you feel adventurous, or if you really have nothing better to do, go read it:

I'm really liking the UHA760 at the moment. Great dynamics, great soundstage/separation (I have crossfeed set to 'bypass') and immersion (much better than the other portable DAC/amp combos that I have previously owned) and pleasurable bass rumble on my headphones that are capable of it - and I'm only using the inbuilt DAC.
