RLF, I've got just 20 hours in so far and its already well ahead of my Ayre 7. Looking forward to the improvements yet to come. I never ever thought I'd be listening to less vinyl but thats just whats happening. We've had a unusually warm spell of weather here thats made tube based listening quite uncomfortable but now its cooling off I will get a lot more hours in.
It is indeed a very special player thats already swayed a very pro vinyl listener. You're right it is a classic.

I listen to my N10/DAC 95% of the time due to the convenience of having my my main music library at my fingertips via my iPad. That being said, I have over 130 SACDs which of course I play on the Ayre.

I'm glad to hear that. When I first home auditioned my dealer's C-5 as well as a few other players including a more expensive Esoteric, I chose the Ayre as I found that it offered something special back then and still does. It's a really great player in my opinion.

When playing CDs, I follow a suggestion from Charles Hansen and use the digital link from the C-5xeMP to the QX-5 Twenty digital hub to take advantage of its newer DAC process. As great as the C-5xeMP sounds, I think it sounds a bit better through the QX-5 Twenty.
