I agree with Ron.  With 2.034, it sounded pretty distorted with SP settings 
higher than 3.  Now I can go up to 4 or 5 with acceptable results.

Another problem I had with prior firmware, one that I haven't seen written 
about here, concerned the DVK.  The output level was much lower than it should 
be.  That has been fixed in 2.037j.
