I've had my HAP for over a year now. I love the machine but the sound is generally cold and clinical while playing the loaded WAV files. Looking to warm up the sound. Would a Cambridge DacMagic 100 or YAQIN SD-CD2 Tube buffer make the biggest difference?
I found the biggest difference is running a Burson Cable+ Pro between my Sony HAP and pre. Cable has a buffer attached and is $200 with a 30 day money back guarantee from the factory. It frees up a cable that you can resell.A friend of mine has also found this to be true.
I thought the HAPZ1ES didn't have a digital output. Did they change this? If that's not the case, then you're limited primarily to external buffers, maybe tube preamps, etc. or internal upgrades (if there's any place that performs surgery on that unit).
Can you combine a the Burson with a DAC? Would you need two sets of cables?
