So, I did it. I took the plunge and ordered my new Gaia in silver. I’m super excited to get it into my system and see for myself how it performs in my system. I have an Audioquest “Coffee” HDMI cable on hand to make the I2s connection to the Venus II, so that should work for now. I have been trying to decide between the Tubulus cable or some other new Audioquest cables that are called 48 and look pretty sweet. Almost everything I have is AQ, so I’m tempted to keep it “in the family“. The next thing on my upgrade list is the fancy SOtM network switch and maybe I’ll pull the trigger on that too. Has anyone added the Gaia to the SOtM SMS-200? As always, any input, ideas, or opinions are always welcome by me.
