But it is difficult to find such tubes.

Yes, I saw it just now. Some are sold as limited sets for crazy money, but I think there are people willing to treat their Continentals with such tubes anyway :)

Hey Folks

I have finally got the CDM, and I love it. Even though the device is quite old, it still rocks!
Got it with the Raytheon 6832, Sonotone 5719, and Sylvania 5977 plus the stoke ones. Waiting for Phillips 6021 and those unmarked 6021 from eBay to arrive.

I've got a small question though, does anyone know where to get the up-to-date driver for macOS? The one on the ALO site doesn't work under macOS Catalina, so I can't play DSD files natively.

Cheers
Andrii.

As I know no need any driver for Mac OS X. But I could not play DSD on cdm also, as many others.

Enjoying the CDM with some nice little upgrades :)
I would definitely recommend buying the Phillips 6021w, the sound is so much better than with the stock ones.

I'm not sure whether this is only me, but thoise tiny tubes look sexy :L3000:

You need the c-media usb driver to play dsd64 on Mac, that’s the usb chipset’s limitation. The problem is that I can’t find the right one for modern macos :frowning2:
Have you tried the driver these guys supply? Given that they still seem to be selling the CDM, perhaps their driver will work for you. I now their Windows 10 DSD driver works.......

Could you please share photos of this Philips 6021w tube’s box and tubes itself, are there green label?
Hi

I do not have the package, got them from another CDM user who bought like 5 or 6 pairs.
They are the blue label, if I'm not wrong they are still on sale on eBay for 18.90$
