Are you saying that the dCS at your dealers' sound pretty much like the other DACs he has in the store?
That is not a test I would try to do at a dealers, only at home, but I have heard the dCS kit often and found it excellent sounding but not at a higher level than I hear at home myself. There has never been a "I must get a home demo" moment with it.

Sound very much like an inverse Diesel scandal to me. They probably put a soundstage enhancer into the DAC which only becomes active when the the DAC is not on a testbench.
Jokes aside. I think I'll just let it be and enjoy the music.
