The upgrade path continues.  I made the mistake of booking the loaner set of Proprius plus Majestic and interconnects.  My idea was to try the Proprius connected direct from my Accession or A*cam DAC then add the Majestic to hear the difference of the better DAC.  The Proprius didn't disappoint, such a smooth sound extending the bass down to levels I didn't know the Monitor Audios could tackle. The bigger change came from the Majestic. Obviously no difference to the analogue input but the digital was transformed. CDs from the A*cam player suddenly sounded 'alive and fuller. Trying HD download files now maked sense, as a source for real interesting listening.
I'm now on the build list for both Majestic and Proprius which just leaves a minor problem with the financial black hole getting bigger.  Must be worthwhileWink

Hi Mike, I had the same moment of 'where did the bass come from' when I connected the loan Proprius amps to my Gold GX100's. I ordered the amps before I sent the load unit to the next person. The Majestic came later and was great, I sold on two well reviewed DACs soon after my own Majestic arrived but it was still a fine investment in my opinion.
