Just popping back in to report that I have received and installed the DAC 2.0 and yes, it's everything that all of you have said it was. No question, a very noticeable improvement over DAC 1. In fact I was trying to keep my expectations tempered after ordering based on the reading of this thread. Am happy to report that my expectations were pleasantly exceeded.
No point repeating all the descriptives previously mentioned here. Bottom line is a huge performance upgrade in the sound of my setup.
By the way Vinnie, you were right about outperforming the RWA Sony HAP-Z1ES Level 3. DAC 2.0 is clearly superior. The great thing about it is that the Sony now works beautifully as a server via USB.
Also, TAK's are on the way for LIO DHT (currently using PX 4's).
Thanks to everyone for their comments and opinions.
