I have this Jay’s CDT2-MK3 now. A friend bought it directly from China and gave it to me for a test while he was waiting for a new DAC (Aqua Formula).
I have been using it for a very short time (also I was busy listening to Meitner MA3), so it is too early to draw conclusions. But the first impression is that it is quite a heavy-weight device. Much more weighty than the built-in streamer in the Bartok.
But I miss the softness a little, as I did with AN CDT2 BG or Metronome.
I think it will take some time to break-in (around 400 hours)
I am using Siltech Ruby Hill 2 power cord and JPS Aluminata AES/EBU digital with Jay’s.
It is very interesting what you write about Clock input. Even if I use the direct connection Bartok (master) to Jay’s (slave), it seems to give some advantages. Please tell more about the possibility of installing an additional clock input?
