ThanX YEAH BIG design flaw on their part! I don't use IEMs at home - but even w/ my Audeze, Mr.Speakers, or others I gotta be careful! I wrote about that into my review of the unit - they said something about wanting to include some aspects of their 20K DaVinci DAC (which is amazing, though 20K - I'm a bit OVER the high end in that way - thank God) but I think they should do an update for that. Using the MS RIGHT NOW! I actually prefer its synergy with the NuForce HAP-100 over my Mytek 192-DSD DAC!! Also: I always take it when I travel, as it can easily drive everything from my Audeze LCD2 w/ Fazor (even drove my OG LCD-3, as indicated in my original review) to my Alphas and its also quiet enough to drive my JH Audio JH-13 Freqphase!! YEAH Darin! I forgot about that. How's the Vostok (SP?) coming? What a serious sesh we had at CES!!!! SURE - I was honored to write the first review of the microStreamer for Positive Feedback! - as I know Kevin really well. Hell, I went to work for Elite Distro (their distributor) years ago because I loved their OG music streamer so much! I wrote about it for The Daily Swarm - letting people know they can have FAR better than a Y-cable leading to their computer! As the Swarm is a music site - but my Sonic Satori column also lives there. IMO: it's still the king of these small USB DAC/amps! thats the OG DF just got the ver1.2 - lets see how it does!!
