It's hard when you realize that you have been lured again by strong marketing campaigns...What a flat and distorted sound from its DAC!! Let's see how it scores but the sound from the DAC is very poor to my ears. Had great hopes with this, but decided to return it after 10 minutes of tests. My aging TC Impact Twin sounds so much dynamic, detailed and real to me than this well built and well marketed box.
1. Was the "Line Output Headroom" set to +24 dBu for this recording?
2. Was the "Line Output Reference Level" set to +4 dBu for this recording?

I've attached a screenshot from the manual...

If not, I'd love to see if there is any change with these settings engaged!
