I do love mine.
Even when I tested it against my stereo preamplifier in pure stereo mode, it impressed me.

I have one of these and use the HD tuner through my 2 channel system.
It's the best sounding HD tuner I've ever had.
It's a better sounding tuner than my vintage Pioneer TX-D1000, Pioneer Elite F-91 to some degree, the Sony XDR-F1HD, and even better than my experience with the McIntosh MR88.
I do apply a little bit of EQ to the tuner, using the built in digital EQ, to take the little edge of some HD broadcasts.
I also stream spotify, airplay, etc, and it works very well.
I couldn't be happier with it.

It's a great purchase. Enjoy!
