I'm not sure why he made the concession, except to attract potential buyers of his high end equipment.

USB technology focuses on jitter reduction. The Audio Note philosophy is a) you can't hear low level jitter and b) the cure is worse than the disease, if there is one.

I have an entry-level USB Dac that sounds very good with my headphone amp, but does not mate at all well with my Audio Note equipment, and does not come close to matching the sound produced by my AN digital front end. A recent review in Stereophile shows that my AN CD4.1x measures very poorly, by the way, compared to my USB Dac, both reviewed by Art Dudley.
