        Heck no, Auteur is an awesome can. Has a bit too much in the mids for my personal tastes, but I do love the sound. If you haven't tried them yet, the Verite pads ( have & like ) & those other (suede?) pads (I haven't heard yet) make them more neutral.

        Nah, Eikon is my favorite ZMF. Everyone's got their favorites, none are meant to replace the others.

        It just means you're team Eikon/Auteur and not team Atticus/Aeolus. Zach made/contracted different drives for a reason...

      Just put a GZ34 metal base in the IHA-1 and it was more of an improvement than I expected

        I haven't tried a WE422A yet, how does it differ in sound from the metal gz34?

        WE422A - Huge but precise soundstage; Airy & transparent at the top without any glare; Accurate and clear in the middle with just a touch of extended decay to warm with being muddy; good tight base.

        Metal GZ34 is faster (than this or any other rectifier i've tried), comparatively smaller soundstage, comparatively closed and slightly compacted in the middle. As deep on the base, not as extended up top. Best feature is it's speed IMO

        I must admit i'm a 422A fanboy, heads above anything else I've tried

      Flat plate is inconsistent, but the funk at 4.5kHz on EARS is killing me...what's a guy supposed to to?

      Note to self: Let go of audio nervosa and just enjoy the music; worrying about Gungnir MB serial # will not alter life in any meaningful way

        I think the spread in the variance of your physiology (fatigue, stress, illness, mental health) day to day or month to month will exceed that of the different DAC units anyway.

        My status post is more like a forum philosophy. Flame wars can always be avoided by remembering that it's only an opinion, and everyone is entitled to have one.

        'Truth' itself can be multifaceted, luckily we life in a free society and have freedom to think and speak our mind independently

        Hopefully the free exchange of informed opinions leads to something useful. This seems better than searching for Truth with a capital T
