Came home today from work and found my new DAC.

I connected it up to my iHP-140 (FLAC) the first thing.

Initial impression is the precision of the sound...locking in good at 44.1.

Have yet to receive my RME sound card, but that should come in shortly...

Unfortunately I'm stuck waiting until tomorrow.

I ran out of the house for about 15 minutes earlier today, and of course, it was during exactly those 15 minutes that UPS showed up to deliver my DA10.

So at the moment I've got a neat little UPS failed-delivery receipt to play with instead of my Lavry. Grrrr

Really interested on this. Could you please compare diferrences between using the balanced output versus the headphone jack?

I am contemplating buying HD650 with aftermarket cable to be used with the Lavry and have to choose between a balanced cable or an aftermarked one

LOL, they are supposed to deliver mine today here in London.
It is 10:00 in the morning and nothing yet. I am not moving from my vantage position about five yards from the entrance, watching outside a big bay window.
Yesterday I have bought food, plenty of coffe and a few new CDs. I am not gonna move of one inch the whole day

They are completely different. The headphone out is high current, low [relatively] voltage swing and is ideal for low impedance headphones [Grado]. The XLR out is low current [relatively], high voltage swing and is ideal for high impedance headphones [K340, Senns].

Man I've been cursed on this DA10 delivery. I got another failed UPS delivery notification today.

This time I ran out for 15 minutes much earlier in the day, figuring that way I'd be home way before the time when UPS would show up. Of course, this was based on the assumption that UPS would show up at approximately the same time as on the previous day. Nope! So now I've got two shiny delivery failure notifications and zero Lavry DA10's.

Gahhh!
