I aA/B'ed the Music and the Bax when visiting Linum HQ:The A/B switchboxDual-input universals to allow actual instant A/B with having to take out the iems, switch cables etc.The two cables have different impedances and I can assure that they don't sound the same. I prefer the Bax, but I can easily see how the Music cable would win you over if lush vocals is your main objective.
The Katana sounds like a perfect sidekick to my K10, a position currently filled by the Savant... Does a man REALLY need all these kidneys? We have "free" health care here in Denmark, so I'd probably get free dialysis if I sold both of mine...
Those bass drivers are not your average drivers... On the right side are the 8 "regular" BA drivers responsible for mids and highs. On the left you can see the two bass drivers... They are HUGE! And damn do they pack a punch!
Nope, light turns teal = 24/176 PCM. No DSD via toslink from the AK240.  Here's what native DSD looks like when the same file is played in Foobar2000:Look at that pretty white light! Sorry for the crummy phone pics, but it's getting late, way too late for me to bother with cameras and card readers and Photoshop and all that. 
The usual reason why we can't have nice things: Lawyers and licensing issues... 
IIRC they killed off DSD over optical in a firmware update not that long ago...
I'll have to double check the sample rate color shown by the Hugo tomorrow, but I have my AK240 with DSD files and a loaner Hugo with a Sysconcept optical cable... Pretty sure you can get DSD out of the AK240 toslink.
I borrowed a Chord Hugo from a friend and have been listening to it feed my K10 all day at work. I shouldn't have done that. Damn this place.
It doesn't take much to drive the X2, but they certainly scale very well...
