Yeah, the problem is my computer desk (with all the headphone gear) is in my studio and the big speaker setup is in the living room.

I'd have to get some long cables for all this.

The housings of the Modi, Magni and Vali are powder coated steel. The other products are aluminum, I think.

Read Chapter 4 in the Schiit story and you will find that it is aluminum other than the 3 models listed previously.

If the streaks don't come out with light rubbing and moisture, they must be left behind from the manufacturing process.  If that's the case, there's not much you can do about it.  I'd hesitate to put lipid-based chemicals on there to cover up the blemishes simply because the case gets so hot.  It could break down or discolor the chemicals, making it look even worse.

I wouldn't do that if I were you. It will at best be a side grade and at worst a down grade.

Loki is a DSD-only DAC.

 

Your DAC is pretty highly rated, so you won't get much in return from a new DAC unless you want to jump up a price bracket or two.
