I see in Chris's K50 review he used an AES into one system, and USB into another, but did not make any comparisons between connectors. Mark Jenkins was quoted as preferring AES output, so that is what I chose to do, especially as I have a Gen2 K50 that does not have the upgraded USB, but I was curious if others have compared various outputs and came to the same conclusion? Is AES the way to go?

I have been following the brand… sadly they keep changing / upgrading their products way to often with a painful process to have it done… apart from £££ a product done well should be good for a few years at least… finally gave up and went with Melco which has outstanding SQ

I don’t understand this.  I purchased a K30 in early 2021 and it improved both in terms of sound quality and user experience without me spending anything additional.  That their product line has evolved doesn’t change anything except for the fact that it allowed them to offer an upgrade that would allow me to significantly improve sound quality should I want to pursue that option.
