  8. Over the years, like a good number of you I'm sure, I've been into HiFi - both car and home. The one thing I have found is that the weakest link as the years tick by are my ears. What sounds good to you in your 20's is very different from you 30's, 40's and 50's. Setup becomes increasingly more important than ever. Simple Hz adjustment to compensate for your changing ears is important as is source quality. If you have a good underlying system, and the DA is a pretty good base (upgraded) system, you can adjust it to your needs but what sounds good to you may well sound not so good to someone e
