well the answer is a
From the first 3 notes coming out of the speakers i knew it was much much better sounding then with the tl431's
(this also confirmed by people i played music to, saying 'WOW' out loud within the first 3 notes being played!!!)
the soundstage is deeper, wider higher, very 3d sounding, lots of air inbetween instruments, there location is now easily identifiable,
detail amazingly has also improved (i thought it was already very detailed) now i hear things i never did before.
Even the bass sounds better more tuneful, more in harmony to the rest of the other frequencies,
Treble too has improved, cymbals etc sound real...
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Supplying this dac direct with the Salas Shunts.
Lucas is right...this Dac (whatever is will eventually be called) Sounds SUBLIME.
OLIVER you HAVE to do this MOD...you will not be dissapointed.
For the mod. i used 21 AWG UniCrystal TM OCC Copper Hookup Wire
with AirLok TM foamed/cellular Teflon Insulation from VH Audio.
