Update on Majestic impressions....
Just been using it via optical cables from Sony tv as radio / tv source which shows as 24 bit / 48kHz source even if the original BBC signal isn't this. Sounds very natural and musical. If I didn't know it was a digital source there's no way I'd know, except no hiss from FM.
I do find the sound via Freeview is very acceptable even if I hate the amount of compression the BBC sticks on these days ie. making the quiet bits louder and the louder bits quieter.
The Majestic is the sort of Dac that you can simply ignore because it is not leaving any digital signature behind. Truly impressive.

I spent some hours enjoying music through my Majestic DAC after changing my speaker setup yesterday. It is a terrific piece of hi-fi.

New speakers, or moving them around in the room?

Getting to the end of my loan - thanks again, brilliant - and my thoughts on the Majestic dac have changed. It's a great sounding dac and preamp, and everything it does sounds great. As a preamp / hub to make tv and radio sound great plus perfect control centre for a phono preamp I think it's hard to beat. Lovely sound and no digital glare / harshness.
Wonderful.
