The preamp is transparent, detailed and neutral, it has only one gain stage that is operated in "class A". The DAC is very good and better than that in the 585 or 526. That being said the DAC in my Esoteric KO1x is better in every aspect and is used for streaming from a Lumin U1 and NAS drive. I only use the balanced inputs and remote for switching sources and volume. The Lumin is controlled by an I-Pad.
