But it's not OK for enthusiasts to add complication to their systems where a problem may or may not have existed?
For example upgrading the power supply of a DAC, may or may not be worthwhile depending on the analogue section of the DAC and the existing power supply.
You are critising people for making their systems more complicated when you have a system that is already over-complicated to begin with.
The expression about greenhouses and throwing stones comes to mind.
There are many valid reasons why an active crossover is a better choice than a passive one, but that is irrelevant in a thread about digital audio. I know you don’t agree but I couldn’t care less.
Adding extraneous fluff to an already competent dac is not in the same ballpark. So I’ll stick with my previous response to you.
