Aurender ACS100 as streamer/player
Sorry to revive a 3 1/2 month old thread, but I have the same question about the ACS100 as the OP. So the two negatives that hamper it's performance are the switching power supply (an easy fix, though at 19V, 3.4A, not as easy as most), and the la...

Streamer creates a Wow experience
I recently bought a Singxer SU-6, but I use it in place of a streamer. Not sure this would work for you as mine is fed from Roon running on a Mac Mini, so I don't actually need my streaming device to be able to connect directly to the streaming se... 
Less Is Really More - Schiit's New Yggdrasil DAC - Less Is More
@jjss49 "does the lim yggy still have that relay click when sensing a different sample rate of music sent to it?  i was forever hoping mike and co would address that..." Yes, it does. I actually kinda like it as it's a audible clue that the sampl... 
Chris' latest cables.
Bump in cost over which ones on his site? Which ones were you going to buy before he offered you these new ones?  
The magic of outdoor listening
Count me among the curmudgeons. If you have no neighbors close enough to be bothered then knock yourself out, otherwise the lack of consideration for others you exhibit by blasting your music outdoors is simply staggering. I have some outdoor Kefs... 
An electrical engineer on how power cables can impact sound quality
I personally feel like the uber-expensive cables are pretty foolish and exist only for those with more money than sense, but if you like 'em and can afford 'em, knock yourself out. BUT, I do like to buy reasonably priced quality cables. Power and ... 
Ifi Zen Streamer plus upgraded power supply - the streamer to beat??
Decided to try the Zen Stream and received it today. Just using the included wall-wart, which is indeed a bit of a joke. Biggest disappointment is that, like the Bricasti M5, it also won't send audio to my Yggdrasil via USB. At this point it's obv... 
Ifi Zen Streamer plus upgraded power supply - the streamer to beat??
I may try the OP's combo once the Zen Stream is Roon ready. I know it apparently works with Roon now, but apparently Roon ready status is coming soon according to the ifi website. I just tried a Bricasti M5 streamer and it couldn't send audio to m... 
What a pile of Schiit
Their customer service is not that bad. They've answered every question I've ever had, including just the other day when I asked if they had any clue what could be causing an incompatibility issue between a streamer I'd bought and my Yggdrasil. Th... 
What a pile of Schiit
Indeed, I've read accounts of various Loki models being used in some pretty high-end systems and they only get raves. I too suspect the user above has something else going on that's causing the hum.  
What a pile of Schiit
There are a number of posters that are clearly talking out of their posterior here. I'm on my fourth Schiit product, a Yggdrasil "Less-Is-More" version. I've been extremely pleased with all of them. The Yggdrasil is, without a doubt, one of the be... 
Need help choosing a new DAC
Your willingness and desire to audition the candidates will serve you well. I would  add to the several who have spoken in favor of the Yggdrasil, and in particular I would recommend the new "less-is-more" variant. I predict it will eventually be ... 
Roon Streaming Service actually Degrades the sound
I think they already are addressing it. There is a beta that lifetime subscribers have been invited to try. Most of it is cosmetic or has to do with the UI, but one paragraph in the notes says this; We’ve made changes to Roon’s buffering and cach... 
Roon Streaming Service actually Degrades the sound
"I suppose its popularity has made it an easy target." I think you're spot-on with this. People love to bring down and bad-mouth popular products, trends, even other people.
