You can have my place...I'm feeling generous.
Where's the exclusivity gone.
Ahahaha...don't think I would spend 11k for the Klimax tough
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Are (top 5) these streamers really that awesome that it will totally sound out-of-this-world from systems under 1k, such as the Cambridge Audio NP30, Mazantz, Yamaha, Sonoa..etc ?...I'm still in the decison of purchasing a streamer for a mid size room, but, I do find some awfully high priced for what could be artifically priced and branded !...I'm currently streaming from a NAS to my Marantz CR603 (bedroom); and am pleased with it, and can't tell the difference from the original cd transfered to FLAC then streamed to CR603. Sound is important, but will you really notice to a point where you can justify 3K plus ?
Make sure you don't listen to one then, as imo it matches a hi-end TT....would sound unbelievable through some expensive SFs.
