Thanks
C-3850 is fully balanced i.e. two AAVA volume controls per channel.
C-2850 is not.
If you do not want to use option cards (AD2850, DAC50) I'd suggest you go for the C-3850, specifically since you already own a A-75.

I have been running Devore O/96 with an Accuphase E-600 for the past 4 years after moving away from a much more expensive Shindo separates combo (Giscours, Cortese & Haut Brion).

I would consider the E-650 for your O/93, maybe a small class A separated combo.

But this is probably a discussion for another thread

- streaming can be controlled via dCS proprietary app (Mosaic) or other (e.g. Roon)
- currently supports MQA

That setup wouldn't work if you have an analog source. You would still need a preamp in that case.

I currently have a C-2110 and I think it's time for an upgrade. I like the SS preamp married to a tube power amp so I will likely look at the new offering from Accuphase. Now it's just a matter of how high to go and also if it's worth spending more on the preamp or on the DAC. I feel I would get more value from going to a dCS and upgrading the preamp later.

Yes and No.

Since I use a digital room correction (currently DG-58) the analog source (phono preamp C-37) is converted into digital via the A/D of DG-58 or Nagra VI and then the corrected digital output is fed to dCS (974 DDC, Vivaldi DAC).
However, I must admit I do use a preamp (C-3850) after this.
