Thanks Steve! The DA2 is definitely an amazing product. This is just that much more amazing in my system! Something to be said for system synergy. In another system it might go the other way.

Thanks Gary! I havenít been this happy with a digital product since waaay back in the day when I first fired up my California Audio Labs Aria MkIII. That of course wouldnít compete with anything today but back in the 80s that thing did magic ... and so does the D-02X!

Gadawg, congratulations on the great DAC. How do you connect your k-01xs to D-02X?
What cable(s) are you using for that?
Thank you.

Currently using a Shunyata Anaconda AES/EBU digital cable out of the player to the left xlr digital input on the D-02X. Sounds really good. When I get the P-02X Iím guessing their Eslink4 is the way to go. Iíll defer to those who already have done so when the time comes.

Cool...if the D-02X is that good I can't wait to hear how good D1X is.

You think there is a future in disc spinning? I'm curious why one might buy a P-02X rather than N-03T, unless you had a large SACD collection.

There are a ton of record stores here in town that sell used cds dirt cheap so Iíve been buying large quantities and I have no desire to rip them. I also am in the camp that at least for me ... think the spinny things sound better with an awesome transport. Donít get me wrong ... I love hires and DSD but I stream mainly to figure out what I want to buy. Call me old fashioned but it works for me. I have an Aurender so no need for the esoteric version.

George
