Default AVC help

I have distorted sound when I play DSD files, with PCM files & vinyl sounds great, I don't understand the reason, first I guessed different volume level but DSD files sound less level than PCM & vinyl, the distortion playing DSD files is with or without preamp. Contacted Dave of Intact Audio and said "It may be that you don't have enough inductance since the Thomas Mayer units are gapped to 20hy's" "I do know that people have successfully used TVC's so it must be the lack of isolation of the AVC's" I increased the inductance value to 30Hy's but still sounds distorted, still can't be enough inductance?

I connected input caps to the AVC and DSD files are playing ok, so the problem is related with Legato 3.10

N.B. Measured Legato outputs and there is no DC output
