I am greatly enjoying this DAC (now that I found the tubes!) but honestly without A/Bing I dunno if the whole thing is just psychosomatic tricks. I already have a pretty good DAC (hand-made DAC WOW from here: http://www.hotaudio.com/store2/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=245 actually, this could be a good candidate for another drop...) so I'll have to try to figure out how to do a scientific comparison of the two. Maybe with two instances of foobar or something, each controlled remotely...blegh

Yeah that would be an interesting comparison. Maybe a Y cable so that your headphones will plug into two different sources and then get Windows to switch between outputs. I have the DAC Destroyer but upgraded to the Schiit Modi instead of going up the Hotaudio chain. Though, changing tubes is going to change the sound output so from a pure utility standpoint, it kills the DAC WOW. Definitely a lot of tube options to roll.
