Can anyone describe the intrinsic character of the Zu Pivot?

Also, how well does it synergize with an RME Digi96/8 PAD (I have a Grado 1/4 to 1/8 adapter from my Grado SR 60 headphones)?

And do you think a 1/4 to 1/8 headphone adapter is a better (i.e. less signal degradation) than a 1/4 to RCA adapter?

Compared to a cheapo cable the Pivot has more detail and slightly better bass.

"slightly hollow lower midrange/upper bass" compared to what?
I dont think that would be the cable, maybe your source or amp or somthing.

I've had both. The Pivot is brighter sounding, and more revealing. The AR Pro cable is darker sounding, however it has good solid mids and bass. I liked the AR Pro, but I'm a detail freak. I found myself enjoying the Pivot more when I owned it.
