Antipodes DS GT versus Bryston BDP2

I sold my BDP2 and replaced it with the Antipodes DS GT. My initial thoughts were I wanted something that had storage, a CD ripper, and the same sound quality. What I discovered was, the sound is a noticeable step up...I don't know if it's because Roon is so much better than Mpad that I was using with the BDP2 or the DS GT is just much better? The good news is even on Tidal, music sounds like true CD quality, with the BDP2 I couldn't listen to Tidal without wanting to turn it off.
The bad news is, the DS GT takes a long time to rip CDs compared to my computer with DB Poweramp. In addition, the DS GT seems to have problems reading some disc. Finally Roon isn't intuitive and I'm having problems navigating through it. Just my thoughts!
I'm not a dealer and have no association with Antipodes. After 4 days with the DS GT music server, I just can't believe what I'm hearing. I know it's easy to exaggerate and I'll be the first to say, there are no absolutes with Audio. In addition, I know that others may hear it on their system and prefer something else.
The most noticeable differences are with bass, soundstage, and voices. The bass is more pronounced in every way. The soundstage has opened up a little more and there appears to be more space between instruments. I hate to say it's more 3-dimensional, but that's the truth. Voices are so real, I can hear the artist breathing and subtle information is more fleshed out. My wife and I were listening to the best of David Sanborn and she agreed that there is more detail. My friend kept telling me that the Antipodes was a serious step up from the Bryston BDP2, but I didn't want to hear it. I'm really just tired of spending money. I always say, "you don't know what you don't know!" I thought my system was great, but I swear the innocent looking Antipodes DS GT has taken it to another level. If your looking to spend 3-5K you owe it to yourself to at least try the Antipodes DS GT or if you want to spend more, their top of the line DX. 
I like the Antipodes DS GT, I'm thinking about getting the Antipodes DX. Has anyone compared the DS GT to the DX?
The DX is very nice with excellent tone and body.  IMO it displays good balance and leans a touch more toward musicality than resolution, which suits my tastes perfectly.  I have the Gen 2 and am completely happy with it.

The DS GT improves on the DS REF power supply with an outboard supply that is not quite as good as what is in the DX.  How much all that matters is anybody's guess but the Antipodes people seem to think it sounds pretty good.

I have not read about any head-to-head comparisons.
To be honest I'm sort of shocked by how good the DS GT is compared to the Bryston BDP2. I prefer the Antipodes DS GT by a wide margin. Unfortunately, "my sickness ":), now thinks, well if the DS GT is that good, how does the DX sound. Any dealers that have made a direct comparison?
