Well, considering that the uses a single WM while the Plus uses 2 WM in dual differential the isn’t just a single ended version of the Plus and its performance may vary somewhat. As an experiment I played one of the hi res files through Foobar, and I can see at the bottom that it’s recognising it as a 96khz file, but it’s still only getting to the DAC at I did give both of the Cambridge DACs a listen in my second system where they gave a creditable performance with the Lym Audio 1.
