It's such a big difference in SQ across the board! Stage, details, even 3D sound.....very impressed!
I haven't tried the analog way.
I’d suggest anyone buying Xeo/Focus XD and Dynaudio transmitter to pass on Connect/Hub transmitter. Save a few more bucks and get the Node 2i. It does everything better and has all the connections, options, apps, BT, AptX HD,... BluOS app for it is second to none!
Do try the analog output and report back, please.
What I love about the Bluesound gear as much as the sound quality is the BluOS interface. Very easy to use and deceptively capable of so many ways to work with a playlist made up of tracks from multiple sources. You can start with one song and just keep adding as you switch sources, save it, change it up and save it with a new name. Many sources available, more coming all the time, though slowly. Fortunately, free updates to both firmware and apps.
I wonder now how
is doing with the NAD C658. Did it come in?
