I have an Audiolab M-DAC (which I reckon is superior to the DAC included in the Stream Box), so I would have liked to know if the "Lightweight, limp sound" is limited to the analogue output or also found on the digital output. I assume the former, since using the digital output would imply that the function of the device is reduced to simply collecting the data from whatever source and passing it on to the digtal output wihtout messing it up.
Also, I would have liked to know what firmware was installed on the device tested since this is subject to change and could easily address the apparent "issues when streaming high-res files" (also, I don't see the date of the review, so it's hard to guess what firmware version it could have been).

This versatile all-in-one solution has plenty of features to root for, but sound quality isn’t one of them
As exciting and flamboyant as it is, the 2010S2 has too many caveats when it comes to dynamics and cohesiveness for us to recommend it over rivals<
A sharp, exciting picture with essential smarts – and at a terrific price
