Well, I got my reply from ARC. Even if there was no interest or other replies at least the info relayed to me can aid someone in their decision on wether or not to purchase a CD 9 ( for use of the Usb function that is ). Basically, what ARC said to me was that the audition unit I have is circa 2013 which at that time the OS for Mac was Yosemite. Therefore it is no longer compatible with the newer El Capitan OS and there is no software nor software upgrade available for it but a hardware one involving the DAC chip and some other stuff worth $1900. However, the newer production units containing a "2.0" sticker at the back ( I guess version 2.0 ) is compatible with the newer operating systems. These units only began production this year according to them.
Thanx for that info. I was in the process of looking for a copy of Yosemite as well and downgrading my macbook air just to try the same. I 'll forgo that plan since it's a useless exercise anyway. As much as I love the Cd-9, maybe I'll try the DAC 9 instead and use my existing Cd/sacd player as a transport. Hopefully, it will sound pretty similar but with the USB flexibility.
