Thanks, I currently use a modified Mac Mini with J River, previously used an Aurender N10 and agree with your comments regarding the T2 describing the sound. Thank you for the reply.

Hi Jim,
I have had a Cary 600 DMS going on 2 weeks. Great player and built like a tank. Good enough digital volume design that you probably will not need a pre. Running the Carry direct into Odyssey Kismet Monoblocks.
This replaced an Aurender A10 that I was running with a Microzotl 2.0s tube preamp.
I had a Lumin T2 for a bit. Very detailed, upfront and in my system would get fatiguing in a short time.I have Persona 5f speakers that match much better wih the AKM dacs than the Sabre's. Also had the Gold Note DS 10 which is good for 2500 it is not in the same league as the Cary.
The Cary is very laid back. Smooth yet detailed with big bass.
Their native app runs Tidal and Quboz perfectly. Cool to play local hi Rez files off SD cards. Roon ready
The color display is real nice and you can set it up with different themes and what info you like.
I have had players from Bryston,Auralic,Aurender, and the above mentioned and the Cary by far is the best of the bunch.
Great customer service as all emails are promptly replied to.
Very satisfied!!

I bought a DMS-500 about a year and half ago. I enjoyed it a lot but listened to some bad advice and sold it too soon. Then last week I happened to come across a preloved one on the Cary site at a significant discount and bought it . Now I remember why I bought it the first time around. Its just so much fun to listen to.
I definitely see a DMS-600 coming in the very near future. At that point, my Aurender N10 will go up for sale.

Has anyone here heard a comparison between the DMS-500 and newer DMS-600?

I own the 500..and its pretty special. But I have that itch.

I just installed the DMS-600, and it is a huge improvement over the DMS-500. It has all the positive attributes of the 500 plus a whole lot more. The soundstage is larger and more focused, the level of detail has increased dramatically, but it did not lose any warmth. The highs are sweet and natural. Highly recommended! Scratch that itch!

I purchased a refurb DMS-500from Cary and have been thrilled, I can finally listen at high levels with detail and no pain. Great roon integration, I can stream hirez perfectly dsd/dvda wirelessly, using a mesh network. Unfortunately it shares the phillips IR codes of my name preamp, so a bit of a hassle
