Best comment yet on my system - Ayre QB-9 DSD

I recently added a QB-9 DSD to replace my Micromega MyDAC and got quite an interesting comment from my girlfriend last night.  

We spend a lot of time in front of my system, so she has grown to appreciate what high quality audio has to offer.  Last night however I asked her if anything sounded different to her since adding the DAC.  She laughed and said that she's not a techie but it sounded like I didn't turn on the right or left speaker, which is funny since it's a 2-channel system.

I think she put her finger on what the Ayre has done to my system.  The soundstage has become more seamless, more dense and focused.  My speakers have truly disappeared.  

Overall I could not be happier with my "new" DAC, but thought it was a cool comment that you all may get a kick out of.
"Loved ones" can surprise you when you least expect it

Why wife came in one day and asked
"what have you done to the TV? - it looks so much more vivid!"
"Just changed the power cable" I replied

What is really funny, I didn’t notice any improvements in the picture

Generally, my wife does not notice any audible improvements on the two channel system.

Seems she is more visually "tuned"

Go figure - its a fickle hobby   :-)

I recently just bought one too.  Out of curiosity, how much did you pick yours up for?
