    I have owned the Metrum Acoustics FLINT since March 2019, primarily as the DAC for my office system.I bought the DAC 2 chip upgrade at the time of purchase. After some ‘running-in’, I would describe the overall sound as smooth, flowing and articulate, providing a relaxed listening experience. Slightly on the warm side of neutral to my ears, but with impressive detail and an equally impressive wide soundstage with excellent, pin-sharp imaging.Ideally, I would have liked a deeper soundstage but I am nit-picking at this price. I use a Gilmore Lite MK2 headphone amplifier with either Sennheiser HD650 or MrSpeakers AEON Flow Open headphones.I find this a good match for the FLINT .. the Gilmore is at a similar cost and like the FLINT punches above its price-point in sound quality.To feed the FLINT, I use a Schiit EITR USB/S-PDIF converter, and further isolated it from the source computer’s USB power with an external LPS to inject clean 5v into the USB-B plug. The end-result is a high level of clarity and low noise-floor.All in all, I am very pleased with this combination.
    A recommended audition.
