    I'm old enough to remember when almost every preamplifier, receiver, and integrated amplifier, had a balance control. Most also had tone controls and loudness compensation.

    I consider myself fortunate to be unable to hear differences between DACs. It allows me to enjoy my Gungnir OG and live happily ever after.
