The Diablo 300 is a wonderful piece. I've had mine for about eight months now, replacing my Mark Levinson #331. Greg's description of the sound is pretty much spot on to what I've been hearing, using with Magico S3 Mk2s and an Esoteric K-03X.

I am not surprised of your findings. But equally happy for the result. Hopefully this will inspire more people to give it a listening.

Thanks! Not sure if I want to go up the cable and PC swapping food chain. Just bought Audioquest WEL interconnect and Hurricane PC. Enough already

How much of the quality of the new sound do you attribute to the change to Audioquest cables (especially the Hurricane PC)?

The Hurricane PC had a very significant impact on my K-01X, both with my previous integrated and my Diablo 300.
