My new DAP finally arrived and it has transformed my experience of the LX. The bass is full but not overpowering. Balance is restored. These still may not be my end game for the music I listen too but for the last 1/2 hour each song has been a joy. I have a hard time imagining that the pairing wit the M11 just really rubbed me the wrong way but boy I’m glad to have a better(to me) sounding source.
