I didn't see much on their website.
    I have listened to it several times. It IS run by a Tablet and reads straight from the NAS. Pretty sure it can do all those streaming services.

    For tube, the Vac 170 seems like a decent bet as your speakers aren't terribly tough to drive at 89dbs and don't huge phase swings.
    That is why I didn't say the CTH, rather the "Little Heaven Corner" LHC208 Integrated amp/Ethernet Dac.

    You should not make a decision on an integrated amp without considering Gryphon Diablo 300.

    Re: Considering Integrated amps?

    I do have the INT-60 and love it, really great amp. Will be pairing it with my brand new Harbeth 30.2 40th Anniversary speakers when I get to the summerhouse next time around x-mas.

    If you like the Pass sound, the INT-60 is a fantastic performer.

    Re: Considering Integrated amps?

    You know, this NAIM Uniti Nova I have in the store is a terrific all-in-one Integrated. It is a Roon endpoint too. Connect speakers and an Ethernet cable and go!

    I love it’s display screen too.
