hahahahahahaha.....well I've only had the c2600 for about 9 months.

And I have a huge vinyl collection.

The dealer in Baton Rouge who carries Aurender has been sending me emails...I truly need to go down to demo.

I have a C2300 and use the D1100 strictly as a DAC because I also listen to vinyl. If you need analog inputs keep the C2600 and ad the D1100. If you do not plan on needing analog inputs now or in the future get the D1100 and sell/trade to the D1100.

Does anyone have experience between the N10 clock controlled spdif sound vs the esoteric clock control of the k01x?

True...but I wonder how much of an improvement it would be to use the D1100 DAC vs the C2600 DAC. Its the same DAC. I realize the new D1100 has separate power supplies etc...

I just emailed a Aurender dealer. Going down soon to demo...Great thread.

The c2600 is not the same DAC as the D1100. The D1100 is fully balanced and duel mono power supplies, there other differences in the circuitry, solid state quiet components vs tubes.

I thought it was the same 9018s DAC in both.

This is helpful for me as well as I have an N10 and am using USB only right now. Sounds like i need to invest in a coax/aes-ebu cable and a high end dac.

Now with the N100C does this bring it closer to the N10? Both now have SPDIF.

Paul-

According to the folks at Aurender, the coax on the N100C is the same as adding their usb to coax adapter to an N100 only built in. The coax is not "as sophisticated" as the N10.

I recently read somewhere that a fellow with an N100C did not detect much difference between the coax and usb on the N100C.
