I think as time goes, Theta has understood they need USB interface, as well as Roon Ready, and MQA support.
(Now also Sony supports MQA)
To do these tings propperly, and espessially the USB is quite a demanding process.
I personally is not in a need of USB interface anymore, I rather have RAAT implemented.
Here is a link about jitter and USB just posted by John Swenson, the designer of MicroRendu, LPS-1, and ISO REGEN
And finally it seems that DSD support is getting more important again. Yes, it may be a dead format for issue music, but so far I have not found one user not saying DSD is better than PCM, when upsampling with HQPlayer or using the new upsampling feature in Roon.
So I think Theta may as well should considder seriously to start with DSD. Upgrade the Gen 8 ?
So unless the new CB has most of these feautes incorpoated (or a new Gen 8 upgrade), there may not be such a demand or need to upgrade.
I would not be supriced if this take another 12 months.
At least if "Digital is still going to be done right" 😀
