Just installed my E30 and it’s usb hooked up to a MacBook Pro.. I’ve been using Amazon Music and I’m getting superb results into an audiophile type stereo + subs setup.. I got the silver and it looks spiffy next to my silver Loki Preamp and PS M... 
One big reason why brick and mortar high end audio dealers struggle.
This topic has really struck a nerve.. At a high end store in The Bay Area I was looking for some expensive loudspeakers. The salesman had a silent partner who pretended to also be a customer.. I left..  
Best "Bang for the Buck" you have owned?
My PS Audio M-700 Monoblocks..And I switched from more expensive Tube Amplifiers. 
Thoughts on choosing an amplifier
Consider a pair of M700 Monoblock’s from PS Audio..Better reviewed and cheaper than the Benchmark and listed as a ’A’ Component by Stereophile in the most recent issue..I run them with a Schiit Freya and XLR connections.. 
Should I trade up from a Kavent/Shengya/Vincent mono block ??
So I did the deal with HiFi Heaven and got the M700 Stellar MonoBlocks..They are fantastic and the best I've ever owned.. A rating in Stereophile ..A good cheap deal for sure..I'm running Focal Speakers..

What are some of the most underrated and overrated loudspeakers you’ve auditioned?
Overrated B&W..Underrated Spatial Audio Labs.. 
WAudio on Amazon .. 1/3 the price of most others and top shelf.. 
PS Audio Revises Marketing to a Direct Sales Only Model
Sounds like a good idea..Waiting for their Stellar Streamer.. 
AC Dedicated Line
My Pro Electrician installed a separate 15 Amp AC line with its own separate Circuit Breaker Box which is (lucky) on the outside wall of my listening room (garage)..I used a mix of the best Oyaide AC Plugs, installed upside down (Hospital style)..... 
Bic Venturi Formula 6’s..Large and not so accurate but perfect for Led Zeppelin.. 
Again the topic of weight of amps
My new PS Audio M700 Monoblocks weigh 13 Lbs. each..They sound better than the Class A 70 Lbs. monsters Monoblocks they replaced.. 
Streamer choices
Currently the Teac nt505..But I'm waiting for PS Audio's Stellar Streamer with MQA. 
Ordered my new amp today... been a long road!
You need some better wire my friend and also clean all the tips of your wires with DeoxiT..Spend about $200 on speaker wires.. I like Better Cables on Amazon..I recently bought a pair of PS Audio M700’s and cleaned every connection ..Good luck.. 
Sound quality issues streaming from Tidal vs CD
You need a better Router I think..Try it from a MacBook.I use an Explorer2 and it sounds fantastic..
