Aurender N100h vs. SOtM sms-200 Ultra
My N100h arrives tomorrow, hoping it pairs nicely with my Gumby. Did a lot of research comparing the Aurender to the Auralic Aries and it seems to be a significant upgrade. Koestner...good luck with whatever you choose. 
Gumby vs Yggy
Thanks everyone for the feedback and help. I ended up keeping it :) I also put my old Threshold S200 back into the system and things are sounding pretty nice. I guess I really should be looking at a proper streamer.Has anyone used a Bryston BDP-1 ...

I left it powered on and processing music streams for a solid week before I was very critical with it. At which time I started with the tweaks, power cord, usb vs optical, isolation stand etc. There certainly isn't a wow factor with this upgrade, ...

yeah plus I was pretty stoked about buying the Gumby with the gen5 usb card, was supposed to negate the need for any intermediate device. 
Gumby vs Yggy
Wow....that's a big statement!!! Or get that tube amp I'm dreaming of lol. But seriously, shouldn't a good computer with good software be a "good" source. I looked at the Auralic streamers and they are doable. My Mac with Audirvana is much better ... 
Gumby vs Yggy
Thanks gdhal!! I think that’s what disappointed me, all the Gumby and Yggy reviews tell of huge sonic gains and talked of the multibit “magic”. Don’t get me wrong, it sounded great, but so does my Arcam. Some songs favored one or the other but ver... 
Gumby vs Yggy
