I'd like to get the M1 CDT to go with my DAC.

I'm not sure whether to go co-axial or use the AES/EBU Connector. As it will be Chord Chameleon RCAs from DAC to amp is it worth taking advantage of the balance input from Transport to DAC.

Also don't want to start a cable debate but how much should I be thinking of spending on an aes cable. All other cables in my system are by Chord.

I use Siltech AES/EBU interconnect from CDT to M1 DAC. It does sound deeper in bass and clarity compared to when I use coaxial.

But, I also use Siltech balanced XLR from M1 DAC to my amp, so it sa fully balnced from source to amp.

I prefer one make for all the cabling for a certain source. So if you decide to go for AES, try to get a Chord as well.
