Jerry Ozment did indeed design the DAC; his Audio Logic is, in my view, a better unit (better quality parts and, with his most recent changes to it in the past few years, far better bass response) and a bargain in comparison, although it uses a solid state power supply instead of the Jadis' tubed power supply. That said, the Jadis DAC is extremely musical and a pleasure to listen to music through--it's probably a little riper and full in the bass compared to the best you can get, but a wonderful midrange (sounds like what many say about the Audio Aero Capitole, hmmmm). I have not heard the JD-1, but doesn't it look great? That alone would have gotten me to buy it if I didn't like my Forsell so much.
