Summary: Looks great, but functionality is a huge disappointment. I've had this a little over a week, and have been underwhelmed. The sound it produces is nothing special - it sounds no better than the DAC in my 7-year-old Denon 4308ci. I have it connected via studio quality balanced cables to a Marantz PM-11S3. I am extremely frustrated by its lack of responsiveness when using the remote to browse internet radio stations or browse my modest library of HD tracks.
Pros: - Looks - Build Quality
Cons: - Ability to actually play FLAC files - DLNA support is worse than it was 7 years ago from the same company - Price - Too few digital inputs on the back. Would it kill them to offer two or three TOSLINK inputs?
