Exactly same setup in my office, fed by a Synology NAS via a SoTM sMS-100 DLNA renderer controlled by BubbleUPnP on my Android devices), loving it. Before this, I was a speakers-only listener (Naim UnitiQute + KEF LS50s) except when traveling (iBasso DX90 + Etymotic ER-4PT). Mostly modern jazz, world, and classical. The only "negative" of the new setup is that it shows clearly that some otherwise favored recordings are sadly lacking in stereo imaging compared with the best in my collection.

Clarity, power, soundstage, etc all improved. If I had to do again, I would have stuck with the Modi 2 Uber. But we'll see when/if Jason produces a multibit analogue output stage for Bifrost what happens because I'll be ordering that as soon as the budget allows.


Thanks!

 

And thanks for your replies, StanD and theblueprint.
