Recommendations for good WiFi speakers
If you are willing to plug in each speaker into wall power you should audition the Rialto by Cabasse.  A simple pair only plugged into the wall for power, sound amazing and can fill a space larger than I imagined with excellent sound reproduction....

Good measuring DACs vs.
@koestner Check out Lampizator. They have a few models with DHT tubes and at one time employed the 300B.  They may still.  
Soundsmith cartridges
@rsf507 I have used among others the Ortofon Cadenza Black, Ortofon Winfeld Ti, Miyajima Madake, Kiseki Purpleheart, and Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum in the past. I currently also have a SoundSmith Paua II. The Hyperion has an ease that is b...

Looking for an all-in-one just-add-speakers streamer for my son to take to college
Look at the self powered Vanatoo speakers.  Worked well in my son’s dorm and they are blue tooth capable so he just used his phone or a USB from his computer.  Simple and had excellent sound. The Vanatoo Zeros or Model One depending on size needed...
