I do own the G-01 clock, and do suggest give a listen to both, but bet you will decide the Rubidium clock is the way to go for a system on the level of yours. Enjoy! Ted.
+1 and I have them all for comparison.

Some of my stellar recordings on SACD (yamamotos albums for example) are on a level similar to my best vinyl. Some of the best digital files i own/tidal recordings, come so damn close to my SACD's it's not even funny. The Aurender W20 gets you so close to digital nirvana, esp when you own the D02X and P02X. I owned the N10 before I got the W20. I actually sold my N10 to an AA'r and was able to compare them side by side. While the N10 is a stellar unit, the W20 is in a league of its own when it comes down to image saturation and musicality.

My question is how close will the W20 connected via dual AES get to the sound of the P-02X? The N100H while a nice unit isn't close.

As far as digital is concenred, I am completely happy and dont see myself upgrading for a long time. I think you'll be the same way too!

Make sure you connect the transport and dac by the ES-link connection, it's the highest quality connection.

I connect my W20 to the dac by dual aes/ebu.

Now what I need (and you) is a good clock, although i'm not itching to get it anytime soon.
Hi Docmd,

Did you find that the dual AES from the W20 made an improvement compared to single AES for no hirez files.

I may be wrong , but was informed by Aurender that dual AES is only benefits 368khz upwards and anything below is sent via single AES.

From my understanding dual AES transmits half the sample rate over each AES cable and thus, having less jitter,even for lower sample rates, so some benefits over single AES or coax.

Cheers
