Could of very easily threw their hands up at some point yet they did not. I know of few companies that work so hard to support their customers as Aurender does. I know issues are bothersome but they do care and will eventually get a fix if you have some patience and work with them beyond complaining and nasty comments.

You got to realize that its essentially a computer with many DAC's that it interacts with of various internal workings and designs. I can't but feel for them the immense complexity to make it all work. Its a testament to a great company and their people that they just get the job done. Well done Aurender!!
I'm getting the same "pop" between tracks now with the N10. Do you remember what Aurender did to fix this problem?

Any hesitancy completely disappeared the moment I put the W20SE into my system. It was easy to argue it was just throwing bits down a wire and the sound crafting happens in the DAC... but that sure is nonsense. The sound quality change in moving from the Aurlic Aries was enormous... well worth every penny... I am so happy I didn't choose "trying" the N10 first. My digital side now bested my analog side. So, of course I had to order a new turntable and cartridge.

Well I now have my Linn LP 12. It is breaking in. This is going to be interesting comparison said to which end is “better”. It is definitely not immediately obvious. That says so much about the WE20se!

With a couple weeks on the table, I find I am not inclined to “critically listen” for differences and just get sucked into listening to the music whenever I sit to listen to either. I am sure there are some differences although not big, but they are clearly equally musical... which is the perfect ending. Then I can choose the recording I want to hear not be drawn to the “better sounding” end.
