New streamer needed
@riccitone No worries, I am not offended by anyone who is trying to help. I can appreciate that. @mdalton I guess the W4S version you have tried will have been similar to mine, though mine didn't have an internal dac. Upgrading my external dac to...

Thanks, I will look into that!

It can handle 192, but that doesn't matter. I am looking for a streamer that matches the CD transport, not my previous streamer. I received some ideas what to look for, so that is good.

Sonos Connect Ultimo, a Sonos upgraded to a highend streamer by means of a better clock, power supply and spdif output. Done by Magna, a Dutch company, you likely don't know. But it doesn't matter as the cd transport was my reference.   As to th...

Fo What I was saying is that my streamers broke down and because of that  I returned to my Accuphase transport to play cds ans was amazed about the sound of cds through my Accuphase and Merason dac. I am looking for a streamer that sounds just as ...

'In your case the Accuphase machine is top notch. It’s going to be an uphill battle for the lesser streamers to reach or beat the baseline set by the DP-67. Stay the course. Don’t let any of this sway you away from trying a good streamer. It might...

Thanks for all the suggestions of brands and models. Not sure about the Eversolo, but the Volumio Rivo seems to match very will with the Merason Frerot. However, I prefer a streamer with the option of adding an internal 4tb ssd card. And then, of ...

Unfortunately the N10 is beyond my budget. I am in Europe. Used the only N100s still available here are the H versions with the USB output.

Thanks for your recommendations, I will look into these. I have the Merason power supply. Perhaps difficult to comment on, but now I am considering selling the Accuphase and replacing it by a streamer like the N100. Will the sound quality be on pa...

- I am looking for a streamer only, as I have a separate Merason Frerot DAC, preamp and power amp - Roon is not important, Volumio maybe yes - It's for my main system - Headphone option not important - Wifi - (Needed) budget is part of my que...
