I have an obsessive audiophile question. Sorry to beat a dead horse if this has already been debated.
My DS DAC doesn’t stack well on top of my DMP. It seems the left rear corner of the cover of the DMP is popping up a few millimeters. I’ve tried pushing down on it, but it’s not moving. Therefore, the DAC is not sitting flush on top of the DMP the way it did on the PWT. The left rear corner of the DAC is raised up because that plastic semicircle can’t curl down around the DMP corner.
So . . . I want to put the rubber feet back on the DAC and stack it that way. Because at least then the DAC will be sitting even.
So my question is . . . is there any reason why this might be a bad idea? Possibly because now all the weight is sitting on the DMP cover, rather than distributed around the chassis? Could there be either an adverse structural effect or sonic effect? In comparison to sitting flush, I mean. I haven’t removed the plastic film from the DMP, so cosmetic damage is not an issue.
(Why don’t I just stack the DMP on top of the DAC? Because I tried it that way with the PWT and thought it sounded better with the disc spinner on the bottom.)
Would appreciate any advice. Thanks, people, and Happy New Year.
