    By the way. Excuse the scary centipede pic. That was from our old place in the Virgin Islands. Accidentally attached it to a post. No clue how to get rid of it now.

    Columbus Day, so the markets were closed. I “could” have found something to do. But this was more fun.

    100 hours in, everything is sitting on iso pucks. It sounds spectacular. The air between every sound is outstanding. N10 can’t compare.

    It's a great piece of gear. I haven't had as much time as I'd like to listen to it, and heading on vacation this week. I have it connected with the EMM Link.

    From a interface perspective, the mConnect software that can be used for free is garbage. It's a complete necessity to have Roon, so anyone looking at this should be prepared for that expense.

    In the couple of listening sessions I've had, I think it sounds better than my N10 did connected to the DA2. When using the N10, I always noticed significant differences between redbook through DSD. The NS1 seems to flatten that curve, and even the lowest resolution files I have sound spectacular. Better than they sounded on the N10.

    It's been playing pretty much constantly since I brought it home, other than a few hours when I installed a new network switch in my listening room. Time will tell.. but so far it's great.

    Re: EMM Labs - NS1 Network Streamer

    Right on ... that seems to be the EMM way ... in direct comparison to the Esoteric , which is three times the price , the EMM playback is always pleasing ... great soundstage , very immersive , almost everything is listenable , and at a very high level ... as where the Esoteric , with certain media sounds fantastic , but never as consistently pleasurable as the EMM !

    I look forward to listening to the NS1 , which I will be using with a similar set up as yours ... all Bryston front end and amplifiers ...
