    Nice. I was kind of torn, but they kept saying the direct cable sounded best. I think it’s Crystal Cable. But you give up some flexibility. You have that! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    It’s identical to Anniversary Edition. Only P3 and C7 get some upgrades with XD. P3 gets the most. 30, SHL5+ and 40 remain identical to anniversary edition. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
