I was going to switch to the Delta/Sigma combo maily due to their size and tried the new 24/96 on my CAL Ikon MkII. It had more detail, dynamics and better defined LF's but it did something to the midrange that I did not like. Since vocals are important to me I did not go with the DAC and prefer the stock Icon. This is just my personal take and I have not heard the older version of the DAC. I understand that it received a rave review in some magazine recently, maybe Sterophile, I am not certain which one and do not read the mags.
