I have a bedroom that with very little sound power as in satellite speakers sounded great. Problem is the room is not soundproof and at the spl I listen at would be heard at the end of the street.
Yesterday just for reference I used my computer as a source, to the BDA-1 & SP2 internal dac, with no other changes to the setup. The music sounded clinical, whereas the BCD-3 has an organic quality, the difference IMO is marginal. That difference, music played through the BCD-3, gives me sonic bliss. YMMV
