Hi, I just got the new Kora Hermes with the Auricaps and JenaLabs cryo'd wires three weeks ago. It's a really sweet piece. I still have my Bel Canto DAC 1.1 to compare it to, but I prefer the Kora in soundstaging, warmth, and overall realism. The Hermes is a very smooth and alluring DAC. However, I think a better comparison would be with the new Bel Canto DAC2 which comes out any week now.
