well, i would love to tell the true about my experiences, i hope i will not spoil your intention if had
if you are the fan of crisp high and crystall clear mid then the CXN-V2 may not be for you. Mine is V2 version 2 with lunar gray color which is the upgrade of the CXN - V2 verison 1 ( silver and black color )
if you are planning to enter the DSD native world then it may not be for you , since the dual wofson chip just support DoP 64 only, there is no 256/512 or even 64-128 native decoding.
the combo CXN-V2 and CXA-A81 are good and best match when going together, my case is ti ultilize the current CXN since getting the PS-Direct Stream DAC is too much to afford at present
I bought the TEAC NT-505 2 months ago to go with teh stellar stacks ( M700 + SGCD) to find my old favorite taste of DSD sound , the TEAC is higher level compare to CXN-V2 with truely crystall clear, full of details in high and mid , deeper bass, but much digital air than the CXN
The CXN is OK if you are not deamanding too much about it compare to the higher level DAC, just like the $1200 vs $3000-5000 DAC, right?
I’m now just using the CXN with it digiatl radio stations, its radio is really good.
by the way the StreamMagic app on mobile of Cmabrigde is really good which i love most
i some time use the built in dac on SGCD via usb and play with roon, it’s just OK i think.
I hope my old experiences will not impact to your intention.
If you have time, go to listen the CXN youself before you decide .
