... READ about how the product works ...
As you noted earlier:
The copy writers may not have a clue.
Jeff, I was talking about the Gan1 amplifier technology. Not the Bluesound node. I think the streamer has a PCM out so you can bypass the internal DAC. The reason to use it as a front is to move the volume control to it, get a remote, and a sub out. I don't give a rat's patutti about Airplay or other low resolution pay as you go garbage and the last thing I would ever have in my house is Alexa.
The Sabaj has some of these functions built in. It has a larger DSP section than the Peachtree and includes a traditional DAC for sub output.
FYI, I have designed and built SS, tube and amplifiers. I have a degree in electronics.
Whatever okay. I will stick to known engineers, designers and builders that have a stellar product line and reputation as my sources of information. Not an unknown commodity as such. You also seem to be very attracted to cheap, economical products. Are you a regular from ASR?
