    That would be the best interface. I think George has a heavily modded PC as his streamer. Not sure if he’s using his aurender as a streamer. George? If so, that’s very good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Much inspiration can be found within here. I thought about MSB, I heard a fully optioned MSB Select 2, but in the end I decided to stay with Esoteric. You can't go wrong with either.

    What happens if by accident you sit on the iPad, do you get a Vol+ runaway and blow up a speaker? I'm paranoid about that happening after previous misadventure. The only way I control volume is to rotate the volume knob on the pre-amp by hand.
