    Stephen, nice set up !! My son, a PE, is a big fan of DIY Pass Labs topology and is currently building a large pair of Class A mono-blocks. I'll try and post a pick if I can, regardless, I'll keep all updated of my 'streamer quest' !

    Cool. Welcome, back, Dave. Personally, I'm kinda hoping you'll get the Eversolo DMP-A6 because I'm also very intrigued by it. I think it would make for an excellent "all-in-one" digital streaming system when combined with a nice little power amp. In...

    I still havenít installed the A Pods yet. Iím planning on continuing to tweak their positions and let them burn-in some more. But Iím looking forward to finding their best placement.

    The final unfold for MQA has to come from the DAC so if you bypass the Lumin's MQA capable DAC you will lose it.
