I've had one in my system for about 2.5 years. The focus and clarity it provides is a source of much enjoyment. I have gone through several linear power supplies and have found the one sourced from Channel Islands has offered the most top to bottom overall smooth sound. I miss my tubed preamp in the chain. I'm trading detail for some warmth. I go back and forth. I'm using the optical out on a very old JVC XLZ-1010 and 1050. As a spinner it is wonderful. I am in awe of what the DSPEAKER can do with a redbook cd. It is a huge improvement. I bought the unit as I have a pair of aV123 line source speakers the LS6. They excite the room with bass and get all of the knotty pine on the walls dancing and smearing the sound. What the DSPeaker unit has done to tame bass bringing it inti focus and adding detail is amazing. I highly recommend this unit. I can only imagine what a Modwright tube addition could do to this unit as a preamp.
I've not actually used the dSpeaker but having done research, my understanding is that: 1. Optical input is significantly better than USB implementation, good as the USB may be. 2. Linear Power Supply matters most when using analog input or output. If optical in and out, the linear makes little difference. Just what I'm told by one of the manufacturer reps.
If one already owns a 2k DAC but wants room correction you would look to the smaller 8033 DSP unit?
