Setup of the CEntrance DACMini

Setup is about as simple as can be for an audio product. I first tried the DACmini using a wired (not optical) S/PDIF connection from my ancient Marantz CD63, plugged in my Grado SR325i cans and I was ready to go. When I later tried out the line level inputs I used my Audioquest Sidewinder RCA interconnects. A sizable chunk of time was spent using the DACMini as a DAC, driving my main stereo system which consists of SimAudio gear and Daedalus speakers. For a brief bit I tried my AKG 401 phones which proved inferior to the Grados.
