Eversolo DMP A6

This streamer definitely is the "Flavor of the Month" and there are a ton of reviews out there. But I really got a kick of these 2 in particular with their completely different personality and styles:

Note: Hans has the Master Edition ($1299) and Randy has the standard ($859)





I think if you’re reasonable with your expectations of the Eversolo then you’ll find it’s a great network streamer that sounds relatively good. But if you think you’re going to compare it to a $4000 DAC and a good quality streamer you’re going to be disappointed. And that’s fine right? After all it’s an $800 device. I personally have the master edition and have had the standard one which I returned. I will tell you right now that even to an untrained ear, the master addition is significantly better. I sent them both up and timed them together feeding into the analog inputs of my 300B integrated tube amplifier. Every time you switch to the master addition there’s no doubt that it’s a better device overall. Saying that, I still think if you compared to a $4000 DAK and quality network streamer, you are still likely to be disappointed. But for what it is and what I want from it, it’s a fantastic component! 

  I will say this.. ever solo did the homework when it came to the operating system and their phone app. It is smooth and completely bug free.

@richl35 I also own the Master Edition. I bought it for a very High-End headphone system I have on my desk. Space was at a premium and I needed something much smaller. I had no illusions that this might fall short of the sound quality of my headphone system but was willing to make the sacrifice for the space savings and money savings and I was not disappointed. I also own an Aurender N200 and Holo Audio KTE DAC on my Main speaker system. It's not up to that level but its 1/10 the costs.

@willywonka  Good to know because I’ve been itching to try out some quality headphones. Something maybe in the $1500 range would fit my budget. I have to go somewhere like Safe and Sound, which is relatively local to me and audition some.  I’ve never had any, so I have to figure out what I like when it comes to headphones.
