Well, I have ALAC rips as well as FLAC on my PC HD, so I can compare the amps using my desktop PC (using a Sabre DAC into each of the amps), so I can do an apples to apples re lossless with FLAC or ALAC. The reason I may keep both is to use one around the house (C&C) and one anchored to my PC. Or not. No rush as I have a 30-day MBG on Amazon for the E12.
Look forward to the lossless comparison.
The thing is, at these prices it's just too easy to keep em all :)
Swear to god they need to do a "Hoarders" episode just for audio freaks. We're worse than the NRA when it comes to "My Cold Dead Hands":)
