Network audio player/streamer with built in DAC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I'm looking for AIO solution, audio player/streamer/DAC from my NAS to my analog amplifier in ~$1K price range with decent quality. So far I've been able to find few of them mainly Chinese products but have no idea about their sound quality, some of them were even reviewed here but in terms of ability being good player/DAC I'm not sure if they are fully relevant...

 

JF digital HDM-03 - specs i.e. here http://www.china-highend-hifi.com/JF-HDM-03%20En.htm latest firmware supposed to support DSD playback (at least based on Chinese forum)

Soundaware A200 - limited info about it's specs but assume it's the same like D100 PRO reviewed on this forum, additional info http://www.soundaware.net/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=14&id=17 no info about DAC section 

Opera Linear7 - looks like clone of HDM-03S but not 100% sure, more info here http://www.opera-consonance.com/products/digital/D-linear7.htm again couldn't find any info about it's DAC

Musway M1 - specs i.e. here http://www.musway.com.cn/en/product?brand_id=1, pretty new company on the market but player looks interesting

There might be other players I'm not aware of, also I couldn't found any with ESS sabre DAC in this price range :confused_face(1): 

 

I like every type of music with good dynamics and melody :beyersmile:

 

I'll appreciate any input if I should give it a chance and if to which one or rather look for traditional players like Oppo, Pioneer etc.

 

and sorry for my bad english :rolleyes:

 

Thank you

 

Daniel

Not sure what the price range is as I can't see in the links, but this one retails for around $600 on eBay: http://en.auneaudio.com/html/en_products/NewDesign/s-series/126_12.html

 

It uses an AKM4396 I think, which is close enough to a Sabre DAC (or at least manufacturers using these tend to tune the analog output stage to be more transparent).
