I believe the 200 has a USB DAC at 24/192 but no room correction. I have never used room correction on any of my equipment as I never liked what it did. I don't own a PC and can't setup ARC anyway on the Anthem, and I'm not going to buy Bootcamp.

Looking at the pictures of the rear of the CXR200 I don't see a USB Type B port which is why I said there is no USB port for PC ASIO music interface. Interesting that your Revel speakers don't work all that well with the CXR200. The ability to work well with all speaker types was a major strength of the Cambridge products. As such I still suggest you look at a 751R and pair it with either a 752bd, oppo bdp105 or the new CA CXN. Of course a PC (second hand notebook?) would open up a lot more connectivity options.

Sorry - my comments with the Revels is for the Anthem.

AH - there is a front USB port - which I assume is for an iPod. No USB in the back that I can see.
