    Upgrading streamer Auralic , Lumin , Innous

    Ive been really really happy with the IFI zen stream with ifi elite power supply feeding my holo may kte dac, but as if it were only a matter of when and not if i have come down with the upgradeitus.

    I am looking for perhaps a little more openess and detail with out loosing the full bodied 3d soundstage the IFI zen stream presents so well.

    Main features im looking for usb out , roon ready , qobuz , airplay for apple music

    Im currently demoing the Auralic G1.1 as it really has all the features i was looking for and wifi which is nice. ive only had it burning in for a day or 2. so far i can say the sound is more open and detailed but i feel the full bodied 3d soundstage has been sacrificed somewhat. perhaps a little flat?

    My question is has anyone compared the Lumin U1 , U2 mini , Auralic g2.1 , Innous zenith or the New Innous pulsar looks very interesting. Which should i demo next?

    Note that Lumin has authentic and certified Spotify Connect instead of an open source implementation (which does not work on Spotify free account, or HiFi if it is ever released). We also support Tidal Connect. Check out the U2 Mini if you're interested in Lumin.

    I have the U2 Mini. I have an sbooster lps powering it. It’s a really great sounding streamer and I’ve had Auralic, Aurender, DCS network bridge and an Optical Rendu. I’m in Hanford County if you ever want to check it out.

    My 2 cents

    I own an Innuos Zenith MII which stores my own music for serving as well as performs Roon core duties, and it feeds , by way of its own Ethernet port, an Auralic Aries G2.1. The Auralic is the Roon end point.

    While not a cheap combo it’s certainly not the most expensive …. It is however a superb digital front end combo
