        That's why I always have Magni 3+ sitting around me although it hardly gets head time in usual situations. Vali 2+ could be interesting for this purpose though!

        I have micro iDSD OG as a backup amp/DAC/D2D. So glad I was prevented from selling it by battery shipping restrictions.

        BTW, glad you got your SW51 fixed. Which ground wire?

        Edit: Saw your post in the SW51 thread.

        Shame, Mr Weiss grossly oversimplified the nature of what his stuff should be able to do and what is the norm for the sake of mainsteam TV. Mostly missing the point of the awesomness of horns, purist fleawatt tube amplification and fully analog chain.

    Boring Back Office Banker dude, woo.

    My Preference is Warmish/Darkish Neutralish, if that even make sense (answer is no). I try to get to that goal by doing a Warm/Dark DAC with a more Neutralish Amp. Headphones will also do its thing on SQ if I like it or not.

    Computer Desktop Setup:

    Note: This is for casual listening while on the computer, and when I Work From Home (WFH). So listening to random songs, 12 inch collections and also not really focusing on the album. Darker DAC being fed into a mostly neutralish amp.

    Thinkpad X260 via Roon or Foobar2000 via UPnP Output Component or BubbleUPnP > PI2AES [Toslink Output] > Massdrop x Airist R-2R DAC (RDAC) > Zampotech SW51+

    Due to Audio Dropout Issue for some reason when feeding the RDAC Coax, I'm using Toslink. Yeah....

    Main Setup:

    Note: This is for serious album listening and being analytical on certain songs to compare mastering or understand song structure. Sometimes to chill as well. With both the Computer Desktop Setup and the Main Setup I have two separate amps for two semi-different sound flavors/methods. Still good stuff, for me. Unlike the RDAC, I found Bifrost 2 to be on the warmish side with PI2AES but not gooie warm like Unison USB > Bifrost 2. DNA Starlett is mostly a neutralish amp to me, but it still has some signs of warmth and classic tube sound character that is not overdone.

    Roon or UPnP > PI2AES [Coax Output] or Pioneer DV-79AVi DVD Player (CD Transport) [Toslink Output] > Schiit Bifrost 2 > DNA Starlett

    Headphones and IEMs: Senn HD600, Senn HD6XX, NuForce x Drop Move, Drop x JVC HA-FDX1, Sony WF-1000XM3, Sony IER-M9, Moondrop Starfield, Gaudio Nair,
    Focal Elear + Clear Pads = Eclair/"Elex," HifiMan HE400S

    Portable Setups:
    Sony WM1A > Various IEMs
    Phone > Shanling UP4 > Various IEMs
    Phone > Sony WF-1000XM3 mostly with sometimes NuForce x Drop Move
