What U R experiencing is a lower noise floor of that particular IC.
Let me explain. If a poorly constructed IC is implemented into a system, the electrical signal that is being transfered from the source to your amp, in this case, will be modulated by it's inferior construction/poor metals, and this "ghost signal" will tend to make the overall sound "louder" by clouding the original signal with parasitic electrical pollution.
I have a pair of Harmonic Technology Pro-Silway lll's and by them selves, they R very good IC's but when replaced with a pair of AQ Sky's with 72VDC DBS, they sound pretty mediocre.
This tells me that IC construction and that AQ's application of DBS is a step in the right direction and that the dielectric material, and biasing of said material, has a MAJOR effect on how an IC transfers the signal.
