[Note to administrator, I have posted this to both the BHK beta testers thread and the Directstream thread since it equally applies to both]
With the introduction of the Yale system to the Directstream DAC (Ted and Paul, you did it again-just like getting a new and improved DAC!) and the continual, albeit subtle, improvement of the BHK with use (which just adds to the incredible performance of the amp), I find my head spinning as I listen to the music and try to mentally assign the noticable improvement in the various aspects of the sound quality to one or both of the units. However, I find that difficult. For example, is the improved clarity, quietness, transient response, and soundstaging (I could go on) due to the improved performance of the DAC (if so, which update?) or the BHK (new or broken in?). However this distracts me from my enjoyment of the music and I am now in the process trying to block out these considerations out as I concentrate solely on the music which I am enjoying as never before.
Is anybody else going through this (let’s call it a high class problem)? If so I invite your comments.
P.S. Of course I could add my P10, power cables and interconnects to the mix, which would just add to the confusion.
