OK. And I looked again. I had the 1612 in there for the headphones :rolleyes:. That sounds pretty dark. With the 1622 it actually sounds better and the bass isn't that fat.

I'm waiting for my Leaf to be delivered, hopefully in a few days. I have no experience swapping opamps, but I'm intrigued by your discussion of the improvements to be had. Can you suggest a list of opamps that I might consider ordering for this unit and which ones to change out?

My Leaf arrived. well packed, no duty or taxes assessed. Total cost including shipping, $200 CDN. I have tried spdif out, TOS out and currently usb from my Raspberry Pi. Sounds great. It's a little Swiss army knife of dacs for few dollars.

Hi,

I saw on aliExpress that one seller sells 2 "Color" base price and the other $10 more with the remote.
Can you confirm to me if this DAC works with a remote control?
