@jayrossi13 , are you running the DX or EX as a server then the other as the renderer or simply running them as stand-alone devices?
I own a DX Gen3 and have tried it both alone and with a remote renderer including the Metrum Amber and the SOtM triad (I.e., sMS-200ultra, tX-USBultra, and sPS-500). Of the three options, I like the sound with the separate renderer better than as a one-box solution, and I like the SOtM triad better than the Amber, to a small extent.
I recently asked Antipodes their opinion as to the sound quality of the DX with a separate renderer compared to the CX with a separate renderer, and what they think of the DX/EX combination, i.e., should I add an EX? It is their opinion my separating the server and renderer apps does indeed improve SQ but the highest SQ option using the DX would be to buy a CX and use that as the server then use the DX as the renderer.
Seems there is always something new to buy. It is amazing how far computer-based audio has come in just a few years. I thought the DX was the best sounding digital I had heard. Two upgrades and a separate renderer later and things are still improving. Good thing the DX/SOtM combo sounds so good.....I think I am pretty close to the point of diminishing returns so will hold for now.
