It seems in the review they wanted the dac to texture the music , I quote "We’d like a bit more subtle detail and texturing of notes too."
Thats not really what I am looking for. I want to hear the music as it was intended to sound. Unless I am misunderstanding the quote above.
I have used the d3 as a dac source feeding my ALO Pan Am as the amp (Mullard tubes) and I really like the sound using HD 650 cans.
