Re: If foreply can't do the job,

I tried the DAc 1.1 and also returned it. I thought it was fine, but overall preferred my current CDP, an Audio Refinement Complete. Perhaps part of the problem for me was expecting to be "blown away", and not having that experience. I thought it had a very nice bloom and presence, but seemed less smooth in the presentation as compared to the Complete, and not quite as good in the microdynamics. Maybe I didn't "live' with the Audio Note long enough. Another reason I sent it back is that in my system it added some noticeable hum to my amps which are usually very quiet.
