As a result of a recent exchange of emails with DSPeaker support in regard to the internal resolution of the device, I became aware that if one uses only the analog input (in my case connected to the analog output of my Benchmark DAC2 -- see sig), it is then possible to decrease the automatically calculated headroom. I experimented with this, and decreased the headroom from 6dB to 3dB. This produced a startling overall improvement in the already excellent sound quality of my setup. What I hear as a result is greater clarity, even more accurate timbres, a more precise soundstage, and more realistic musical presentation. If you are a DSPeaker user and have only the analog input connected, it may be worthwhile to try reducing the calculated headroom. I think you would be pleasantly surprised with the results.
