Bought a budget audiophile USB cable a few weeks ago and finally unpacked and setup my headfi system in the office during lunch.
The improvement in SQ is quite obvious...interest regained. At least for now.
Should try also the Optical to DAC when you're bored again, lol. I think you should. Also an answering machine.

The Shure 1840 is very different from the 940 - the 1840 has about the same bass and high treble, but in the lower to upper mids is tilted much more toward the lower. I would say the 1840 is darker and more forward, where the forward is in the range around 250-350 hz. The test curve by Innerfidelity looks really flat, but the 1840 does not sound flat.
