so I have tried in vain to do a side by side comparison... Looking to determine how much better the CA will sound (if at all). Also very interested in ease of use with the phone interface. Thinking this will primarily be for tidal. I currently my stream through oppo but hate the interface and frequent drops in connectivity to my phone....I have a feeling I would prefer the cxn for the display if no other reason. The node is appealing pricewise and I like what I have seen/heard but have yet to see or hear a cxn in the wild. No dealers near me carry it. Anyone have hands on with both? Which did you prefer and why? Thanks.
