Better than stand alone DACs and MUCH easier to use!

I spent a month trying stand alone DACs - Mytek 192, Wadia, NAD - comparing all of them to the Sony. The HAP-Z1ES is amazing. The liquidity of the treble and midrange is fantastic, and the bass is deep any musical. The iOS remote on an iPhone and on an iPad is really great - much better than the Apple iOS Remote or the remote solutions from the software streamers -- I had a lot of issues getting a Mac to always and cleanly stream over Firewire & USB... had to reboot the computer a few times. This Sony Hard Drive based option is a really solid solution. The ability to play DSDs is really great, but the real surprise is how much better 16/44 CD quality and lower quality files sound!
