Any suggestions on improving sound quality are always welcome. I'm thinking I need to move to another/larger room. This room has a 10db null at 100Hz.

@audionoobie. Yes definitely an improvement with the DAC3. People either love the Benchmarks or hate them. Dollar for dollar, I think it's the best DAC available-so versatile with an awesome HP amp built in. I just figured you wanted to stay within the Mytek family.

@audionoobie - sorry. I meant to say the Mytek Manhattan II for a new DAC for you. I'd pass on the Brooklyn and go straight to Manhattan II.

Thanks. Yeah the Prestiges come off a tad bright. I'm saving up for a pair of Audio Physics....some day. As far as DAC goes-that Mytek Brooklyn looks awesome. I'd get one but my priority now are loudspeakers.

Looks like you've certainly done your homework. I think the room is fine. If you dont like the STR, I'd humbly suggest selling it and upgrading the DAC. How is the build quality on the GIK traps? I considered them recently. Mike.
