At 90+ hours the sound stage went wild... Lol. T'was kinda freaky....
Now at 120+ hours everything is in its place...the bass tightened and the mid and highs are constantly giving more details. Another 12+ days to go.... But already it is so much an improvement over its predecessor...

Sana nga brader... Pero according to most users ng dac na to, 400 hours daw talaga. Sometimes a bit more... Oh well kung nag iimprove naman as hours build up eh ok lang kahit 800 hours pa.... Hehehe

I don't know for a fact really, but I suspect it should be the hydra. But then again new technology yung venom ps8... Who knows?

Yung nasa computeraudiophile said something similar to what I just mentioned. Pero.... Nag improve pa daw.
The break in commenced after it started to relax iirc.
Relaxed na ako pero di pa ako sure yung dac din....  ^-^

Conclusion
Assigning the Wyred 4 Sound with specific sonic characteristics is difficult, as the best a DAC can do is completely remove itself from the sonic experience. On most tracks the DSDse does just that, completely removes itself from the sonic experience. The soundstage is vast and uncolored and the leading and trailing edges of notes have great attack and sustain. Particularly, cymbals on orchestral music. Horns and strings in small ensemble are a tremendous step up from the Eastern Electric MiniMax that is my everyday DAC. Comparing the DSDse to something in the ├╝ber DAC category, like the Empirical Audio Overdrive, the DSDse is slightly lacking in the analog character that the Overdrive squeezes out of recordings. Then again it should at nearly three times the price,. Even so, the Wyred 4 Sound supports a far greater breadth of formats and is very close in channel separation and S/N. In its price range, the DAC-2 DSDse gives up very little if anything to its pricier competitors in sonic performance.

Was working to have a local techman for w4s here, it turns out they were arranging one in Singapore. If it does pan out, dac2 owners would be in for a treat as mods can be done nearby...
I like the idea the w4s incorporated on their products especially the ability to be upgraded instead of getting phased out for a new model.
W4s seems to pick the better materials too, like the ess9018 sabre chip as well as the femto crystal which are the best as of this time.
