The DAC2v2se keeps getting better. I must have hit another 100 hours or something because it opened up even more. This thing is just musical! I haven’t jumped around in the listening seat like this for years. Compared to my DAC2se there is a larger sound stage, improved imaging, with a very musical presentation. I know those are audiophile key words but it is all true. I don’t know what the improvement is from the 10th anniversary model but if its better it must be just incredible!
