    I have heard that the AES\EBU does give a better performance. As with anything there has to be some compromise. Thanks Jack.

    Mike, 12mths ago new mk2 (with copper heatsinks + upgrades) was €30000, the one in pics was €16000. I'd happily ask the world distributor if you wish. I have no financial interest at all in this. Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!

    Hi Mike - thanks for setting up the board. We lived in Sarasota from '88 to '93. Nice place. With 6" of snow last night, I'm envious!
