So, I took another look at the setup. I had used the 3.5mm output from the DAC because that was the cable I had. I changed to the RCA connectors today and it made a huge difference. I also changed to the 4 ohm taps, but that really didn't make much difference. Bruce has very kindly sent me the article or the Groovewatt, which I will study carefully, but in the meantime, at his suggestion I will change focus to the Forewatt pre-amp. It seems that ECC802S are not readily available here (Australia) so I will have to work on that, but in the meantime plan the chassis and get the rest of the components going. I will do some listening tests with the Oddblock stereo connected to the FHXL's, but as I am not an expert and my source is suspect until I build the Forewatt, they may not be all that authoritative.
Thanks all.
