It is not any different. In fact, I've found out that DAC (as have many of you) is just as important, if not more than amp or headphone in your system. On a different subject, I've just been watching the 'History of the Eagles' on Netflix. Interesting how they started out, both Don and Glen as backup band members for Linda Rondstat. Oh well as interesting as that was, I have to switch back to listening to good quality music on Tidal HiFi. Netflix sound is just plain horrible.
