not trying to mimic your set up, just figure that you have had the opportunity to try many and I am curious what you have chosen as a consensus. I'm thinking stereo converter upgrades and would welcome your impressions.
I use the Black Lion as my ad/da to my compression/eq eq chain on my mix buss
I used to use either the HEDD or for somethings I had EVH's Burl
but after much going back and forth
I use the HEDD more like a mastering engineer as the last in the chain D-D for its mild tape and tube distortion
it seems to give me a nice little last saturation on the mix with some nice harmonics

when i am over dubbing
since my rig had modded avid I/O by Black Lion
my A/D is super cool and I do not need to use anything external

I have never owned a Lavry but have used them and they sound great
as does the Burl .. but for my rig the Burl was too thick
since I am using passive transformers/the Obsidion that has transformers/ mastering Pultecs that have tubes and transformers ...all amounting to a nice load of iron and tube .. so when I added the Burl into that equation
it was just too thick ..
even the little touch of HEDD color sometimes I back off depending on the material ...
