From recordings I have heard I will agree it seems the ID22 sounds a noticeable bit better than the ID14, but I think it's the conversion.

Valid point about the extra circuitry on the console ,, they do say the id22 and better converters than the id14 , but I didn't have the id22 long enough or spend enough time with it to say I could notice any major difference . . I can say though that it sounded good
