New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

It's a shame

you don't have the same ability I have to replace the op amps with FETs and directly compare the difference. They are decidedly larger which would not work in your compact phone sized form factor.

It's a matter of subtlety and musicality. Instruments and voice reveal more of the space around them.

Since mine are socketed, I may spend $25 to get three OPA1622s in eight pin dip packages to compare just for grins.
