I just came from Steve's place, and it sounds fantastic! Two-channel is very impressive, and the multi-channel sounded the best I've heard at his place. Sounds like the venue - much bigger than...

OK, so I took the DD off of the RGPC 400 Pro and put it straight into the wall. Had it straight into the wall for two days, before the CBIV arrived. The sound was worse. If the power conditioner...

Yep, definitely familiar with it. I've been using my XMC-1 without DL, so I want to use the CB4 without DL for a while to compare that first.

Thanks so much Jim HTPC! I will eventually do that. For a while, I'm going to be running without Dirac, until the CB4 breaks in.

It arrives tomorrow (Friday), but I probably won't put it in until tomorrow night, after everyone else goes to bed. Then, on Saturday, I get to play a little bit. :)

If you don't hear break in, but it just sounds consistently good and better than what you've heard, then it's got to be expectation bias.

If you do hear break in and the sound changes, then it's...

Wow! That is really coincidental, because it's the exact change that I heard last night and this morning with my DD. By the weekend, we should both have the 400 hours.
