    Dave ....buy cheap buy twice!

    Stans SEG is a couple of hundred quid but bang for buck a bargain usb/dac/hpa.

    I have one on my AV set up and my son runs one....they exceptional bits of hi fi for reasonable money.

    Stan is a gent to deal with....one of the good guys.

    No connection to Stan just a loyal customer for a few years.

    No thats called selective deafness-a defence mechanism!

    It funny how you can hear small changes in hi fi but cant recall anything from mother in law mono logs, or the contestants on strictly/shoes/bags etc.

    I've mostly given up on olive oil, as ear problems seem often to clear up with time. There can be several reasons for ear problems. Ear wax can obviously block out hearing, and using olive oil can help, though quite often wax will clear itself given time - though it may take a few weeks. Colds and blocked eustachian tubes can also cause problems. Anti histamine (hay fever) tablets can sometimes help to unblock the tubes. Travel in aircraft often seems to me to increase ear problems. Unfortunately some people suffer nerve damage, and their hearing degenerates quite rapidly.

    I do have a Caiman from Stan, and if I want to buy more kit I may well go back for one of his newer models.

    Nevertheless, it's possible that the DAC I pointed out from Richer might be of interest to some at £39 - https://www.richersounds.com/headpho...phone-amp.html It may be of more interest to some who want to have more mobile devices and/or who travel a lot.

    Dave,
    Wasnt thinking mobile...the seg is quite a jump over the caiman 2.

    IM a big cans guy....the senn 700s really sing with the seg when you match the impedance.

    I bought one of these and it's OKish. A curious thing though, using an MBP (Mac OS X) it works fine except on Qobuz - which seems to ignore the headphones completely - but other software does drive the DAC and the headphones.
