Has anyone heard the Terminator sound better after being on for more than a couple days? 
I recently heard it for a number of days and thought I noticed better sound by a tangible margin after a few days from it’s last turn on. 
@anwar
So the front power button is just ‘standby’? I wasn’t talking about unplugging the unit.
thanks
^^ Great review!
IMO it speaks to why the Terminator DAC can work so well in a warmish tube based system or with warmish speakers.
@david_ten what’s the rest of your system again? I feel like I read it somewhere a while ago. 

Good write up BTW

Thanks

I’ve been there. Not with my Terminator but with other great gear...more than once. It happens. Has even happened with cars! 
Been waiting on the new DSP board for weeks. But it’s supposed to be soon, now that some 10 day Chinese holiday is over on the 10th. 
@jerseytrain I second the TWL Digital American. Organic and natural.
