Don't know about your Cayin, but everything I have had with a tube shield seemed to sound better without it. The exceptions are phono preamps where the shield helps decrease noise. Is that tube mounted horizontally? Seems like it might run a bit hotter with a shield. I have been very interested in this player. Would you care to comment on your first impressions of it's sound? Maybe you could treat us to a review after you spend some more time with it.
