Yes, I'd recommend occupying yourself with something else for a while, perhaps a detailed examination of your Zodiac+ impressions? I will have an implosion of gear as a MajikBuss, some supertweeters and a Wyred DAC2 arrive in the same week. Wild audio ride ahead...
Looks like my shipping notice arrived at 3.30 this morning
I'm listening to golfugh's W4S Dac1 right now (using my Weiss as fw-to-S/PDIF)....VERY nice. Give your DAC2 about 400 hours.. .seriously...it will be a roller coaster break in ride until then.
Yep the extreme brightness is gone, I'm also just using one pair at the speakers and volume levels seem about the same. I'm gonna stay with the one pair as I think with anything it could easily go too far if I add too many. Right now I'm just amazed these little things do so much and I just am enjoying the heck out of this new sound.
My system is sounding bright today. It could be me.
satfrat,do you turn your system off when ever you are not listening to it? If this is the case then you are probably hearing the amplifiers come up thermal equilibrium and you may also be hearing the power supply caps form up again after being turned off overnight.I never turn my equipment off because the Jensen four-pole caps in the power supplies take about the same amount of time to reform as they have been powered down.

I have used the zip cord tryout test and am somewhat beside myself on what may be happening. I was sure I was hearing good things and since I had some extra ears the other day I decided to do some listening comparisons with them in and out of the neg speaker terminals while others listened and rotated listening turns to switching duty. The strange thing I found was there was no immediate change in sound upon switching in or out. At that point I decided the makeshift ground enhancers did nothing for me. The following day I decided to put them back in and am sure I hear the difference again. I have to wonder if there is a delayed response in sound with them in and out. I am far from an electrical engineer but have heard first hand what some common changes in speaker wire, interconnects, and such have on the effects of the sound so I would not dismiss the ground enhancers as not doing anything. I am somewhat of a skeptic in the grand scheme of tweaks however. One thing that amuses me is as far as I know no speaker manufactures use this technology in their designs. Who better to understand and realize any positive effects that the ground enhancers may have than a manufacture with knowledge and the tools to realize any good that may exist in this. Then I must wonder is what I may be hearing in fact good or will I soon tire of any change I may be hearing if in fact this is not a predetermined hearing to begin with. For instance a microphonic tube can be somewhat of a nice sound for a short period of time until you realize it is unnatural and irritating. Don't get me wrong if it turns your crank it's great as always. In any event it has peaked my interest enough to order a couple pair.
