Did any of you Theta owners notice Neil's response in the latest Stereophile that they are fed up with waiting on the big boys to approve an industry standard digital connection and our going to start implementing their own with the Compli player which will be compatible both with the new DAC and both processors.Earl I don't know why they'd say that since there has been a standard digital connection for more than two years. I'm talking about i.Link you've got these companies Onkyo, Integra, Integra Research, Pioneer Elite, Denon, Sony, Yamaha, MSB Tech, and Teac Esoteric with products that use the i.Link standard to transfer Hi-res audio. It's clearly not proprietary to Pioneer Elite like some used to think.
P.S. The denon 5900's i.Link port currently is inoperable but not because they didn't use standard (which they did use) but because of some glitch in the design which should be fixed shortly.
