Kees, I was talking about an older single-ended and Maxxed (Black Gate and other audiohpile jewels) Headroom Desktop. The sources we had were - my DIY DAC + transport, Densen Beat D-400, Benchmark DAC1 USB, Docet Lector 0.6T. Let's leave aside what was the best source here. Cables available - VdH The First, VdN The Name, some different DIY and more. When you listen to a lot of op-amps, and you have to do with equipment free of them, you'll start to realize what most (not all) op-amps take away from the sound and distort. You can include here the OPA627AP and BP present in the UDA, IIRC. You can say it's awesome as this word just tells you like it, but this thread is about the top so I tell you guys this one is not the top at least sound-wise. No person at the meeting rated it the best and we hadn't got the best what is available then and there. I have nothing to say about the BUDA which I haven't heard besides expecting it to be doubled functional blocks of the single-ended Headroom amp.
