Does what it is supposed to do.

Just gets out of the way and does what it is supposed to do. The filters, while subtle, do make a difference so try them all out. This is a review of just a couple of days as I did not get time to open it earlier.
The menu could have been better labeled though. I initially got confused between Lo and Ho option thinking it was for gain. Turns out it stands for Line out and Headphone out. My mistake. It is therefore important to read the manual which is just about adequate and kinda borders on the incomplete. However, once you get this out of the way then the unit operation is simplicity itself and you will get used to it within minutes. I just wish there was an option to switch the Line out between Fixed and Variable.
Here's hoping that the burn in dos not bring in any unpleasant traits in the sonic signature which, as of now, is fairly neutral. Not for heavy bass fans.
