    I chatted with the owner of Holo Audio for a long time today and he had great things to say about the OOR + Hypsos stack as well. But I'm going to see if they will give us a demo before trying to buy one. They are expensive and not sure I'd easily find one used.

    But I'm looking into it. :)

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. My previous DAC worked best with I2S input so I had a Matrix X-SPDIF 2 DDC to use with it and it made a huge difference. I tried using the DDC to feed I2S to my May KTE and there was no improvement. I would even say the USB input sounds just a tad better than the I2S input. I sold the DDC and its associated LPS.

    The May KTE has the same USB setup as the Spring 3 KTE.
