OK, this is becoming Yet Another Subjectivist vs Objectivist debate, so I will leave it at that.

thats what I write, yes
but it does not explain all, as 2 preamps that should have sufficient power sounded dull as well

Erik, I just ordered 2 days ago a second dac to try a "no pre" system
(=> 2 way active crossover)
I plan to use a DSP with volume control, maybe a nanoDIGI.
In your case, how do you control volume ?

Concerning the sound quality with or without R141, I did not notice any change with a passive attenuator (TVC). (2 day ABX test, the time to fix my Ncore... )

I got two sets of ncore, one with and one without r141. I haven't noticed any different in sound between them (other than the latter was quieter). The problem must have been somewhere else than absence of r141 if there was a huge difference in sq.

I could take "i could hear a small difference", but "it was barely HiFi"...come on .

I run the Squeezebox output through a digital XO, ending up from an 8-channel DAC. Currently I use only six channels.

The dilemma of low distortion equipment, or systems, is that you can then listen "deeper" into the sound without effort: mediocre sound smears everything with a relatively uniform patina, which may be pleasant, or unpleasant, and one tends to listen to the outside surface of the musical happenings. So, if you can listen further into the mix then your ear adjusts, and realises that something that didn't register before is very clear, and in fact is "wrong", could be improved. Hence the journey continues ...

your system is not resolving.
