why expensive streamers
Streamers and dacs work in tandem. I wouldn't get the best out of a DCS Vivaldi DAC  using a Bluesound Node, just as I wouldn't get the best out of a Grimm using a Topping DAC.  
Streamer only
Lumin U1 mini  
Fritz Carrera 7 Be and 300B power amp?

New Streamer, DAC or Let it Be

Is this a sideways move?
@audioconnection -   I have an offer from a dealer to sell me the Aesthetic Atlas Signature that seems pretty good. Do you think it would be worthwhile? I realize that this is all subjective of course. MImas vs Atlas Sig..
