Thanks for the input re: wi-if interference. Sounds like I shouldn't have a problem using a CDM in the way I want. I'm imagining having it plugged into my desktop most of the time and bringing it around the apartment or to work when I want to listen to its delicious goodness away from my desk.
I put the CDM on my shortlist based on listening experience with Vinnie Rossi's LIO and previous Red Wine Audio product. I'm still thinking about a purchase, but getting close to pulling out my wallet for a purchase. The specs and reviews sound almost perfect for the way I listen to music.
My only advice would be that if you don't mind a two-piece system is that you might be to wait until the CV5 comes out and then pair it with a Chord Mojo. I prefer the DAC portion of the Mojo to that of the CDM, but then again the amp section of the CDM spanks that of the Mojo (of course IMHO, YMMV, etc.). Therefore the CV5 being just the amp portion without the DAC makes a perfect companion to the Mojo. I've used this pairing during my testing of the CV5 and it is awesome. Also it gives you the option of being more portable, as the CDM is really more transportable. Cheers
