What is the point of a streamer?
Laptop or computer or iThing connected (wirelessly or otherwise) to a DAC. What else is needed?
Why plonk a streamer/music server in between? What does it add? (Apart from more cables, another box, and issues regarding set-up, additional software, 'workarounds' and gapless playback etc. and a user interface/display that is usually deficient compared to the user interface on a computer.)
I have not been 'brave' enough to ask so far because I assumed everybody knew apart from me.
However, it turns out that Roy Gandy of Rega has been asking the same question himself. So if I am an idiot for asking, then at least I am good company
