Over the years, I have come to find, that my ears seem to have a similar disposition (although not near the sensitivity) to your ears which has proven to be a great measure.   But there is no accounting for visual taste.  I think the Moon Evolution design is beautiful and I have been considering this unit.  Thanks for the review and your listening insights.

Absolutely, one of my favorite high end audio companies.  And, while the CD drawer may be worthless to me, I would love to have that DAC.  

**Updated:I heard it yesterday and it is absolutely amazing, they just have a way of making everything disappear but the music.  The thing is a beast though weighing in at about 40 pounds ... not a lot for an amp, but for a CD Player that is a lot of weight.
