The sound definitely require some break-in. Initially the sound was very muddy, with the midrange smeared and poorly defined. After a couple of hours of playing, the tonal balance started to improve and the imaging started to sharpen considerably. The higher frequencies in particular became more defined and much, much more dynamic. Interestingly, the DC offset at the outputs started out at 0.126 and 0.780V for the right and left channels, but after playing for awhile they are smaller at 0.045 and 0.022V respectively.

I will be testing a Supersymmetric variation a la Nelson Pass which I hope to complete assembling tomorrow, and will post some comparisons as to the differences.

Cheers,
