    What exactly are you trying to compare? One is a SACD player that allows you to connect an external digital source... so your adding a third variable. The other is a digital streamer and Dac that wont play CDís.

    That would mean their entry level offering has increased 60% in price... I don't think so. At that point buy a Lumin X1 all day long, although based on my time with the N01XD its a different sound entirely.
