I just got my PS Audio Digital Link III (aka DLIII) yesterday and am listening to it for the first time right now and I like it better than my iBasso D4 Mamba portable amp as a DAC, but I can't explain why. I mean, using my old D4 music still sounds good and I think I'd live with it, but now that I've heard the DLIII, the DLIII is SO much better. I think it is because it is so much more forward and has a quieter soundstage that makes the subtle details, that are there in the D4 keep in mind, much more noticeable and the music overall more enjoyable to listen to. Awesome. So far, I like the 650s better than I did. I guess I was at least somewhat right (I'll know fully later) that the DAC was what was making my setup boring. Sweet!
