Anyway, I'm really happy with my new Olasonic DAC. I thought my Focusrite Scarlett was good and it did sound good IMO. But this, I don't care what people might say, and if it cost me almost nothing; I really have a fuller, more defined sound now. I hear it everyday, and I'm shure it's not placebo. It's a significant change, which might not always be a good thing, but I actually find that I have a bigger 'pallet' of color to work with. My tools (plugins) have an extended reach.

Just saying to anyone; a change of output converters might do you wonders. Try it.

(Must be said; This sound I have now, is the sound of the box. It works as a converter and a output preamp for me, so it might well be the analog stage I'm liking. I don't know.)
I agree, a good DAC makes all the difference. It was only when I heard the RME ADI-Pro2 fs that I stopped wondering how to make digital sound as good as vinyl. Good D/A conversion is precise and gentle and subtle and extended and non-fatiguing.

Just to add one thing: I find a definite difference in how my audio now is 'easier' to listen to at a somewhat loud levels, and also 'comes thru' better at very low levels.
