Yes, you want to evaluate your current setup and your taste to decide if you can "handle the truth". Jay of the audiobacon.net wrote an excellent review of the Nano that I find very accurately describes the unit. One of the words he used was that the Nano offers an x-ray view into the music. He also mentioned the Nano mates very well (I'd say ideally) with warm DAC. I had to agree with most he said and like the fact the Nano has accurate high resolution capability to begin with. My DAC isn't a warm one, but I don't like euphonic sound anyway. I said the Nano is unforgiving in a positive sense that it's revealing of what's in your audio chain, upstream or downstream. My guess is its bigger brother Micro iUSB3.0 probably has the same sound signature, and my DAC isn't even close to $5K, so I jumped when the Nano goes on sale. Now with some carefully optimized tweaks, I feel the Nano is serving my music very well.
