    Dammit. Bipolar power supply needed. I won't be able to jigger up anything soon.

    From my comments on the BF2 compared with the Modi 3 (which I forgot I demo'd). All impressions were with the GL MK2. I chalked it up to the transparency of the amp revealing the characteristics of the DACs, but maybe it was about pairing?

    It's both. It's revealing, but also a bit fast / twitchy on the transients so proper synergies - and personal preferences.

    An LPS cleans this up. Most probably would not notice, for for us discerning listeners. Note: I heard the Lite MKII with a different power supply.

    Not great with low impedance (20 ohm) LCD-X.

    In comparison the Liquid Carbon, even with all its faults, really makes the LCD-X feel more "alive" and "dynamic" (but with inferior high frequency timbre/tone). Not sure if that's due in part to a balanced chain with Gungnir Multibit A1, since it's similarly dull-ish out of the Lyr 3.
