Hello All, Back again after testing the SOtM tx USBultra with Antipodes CX EX combo. My view has not changed, I still prefer the CX EX without the SOtm USB ultra. My chain is separate dedicated mains power into Torus Power supply 16 amp AVR2, Antipodes CX EX with the supplied ethernet cable (Roon as I find this the better sounding software at the moment) via Chord Music USB cable into Mscaler, via Wave Storm Cables into Dave, Dave via Chord Sarum T XLR into Bryston 7B3, Sarum T speaker cable into PMC MB2 SE speakers. Network, Draytek wireless access point powered by a Paul Hynes as I have a very noisy network, switches are the next rabbit hole ! I found the vocals to be too hot and the base a little more boom with the SOtM although I must admit on other pieces of music without vocals the sound seemed to have more detail but I am unable to tolerate any harshness. PS Those of you using the CX EX combo need to try the ethernet cables on port 1 input as there is some filtration going on I found I got less network noise with input on 1 output on 2. I checked this on the noisy network and it was a lot closer to the single wireless access I currently use.
