    Can also be used as a DAC. I have no complaints about mine so far, sounds great.

    You can cast anything to it. Not natively though, no.

    I told my wife I wouldn't buy anything else, but this is tempting.

    Do it all of you all! Great deal here! :)
    I got mine from @joecoulson which was a better deal, but that was the brothers separated at birth discount! I am extremely happy with this piece! Had that Joe deal not happened, I'd be all over it!

    Just tell the wife you're babysitting it while the owner is on extended vacation.

    Out of curiosity @WagnerRC, what is (C grade) in the package description?

    Another positive endorsement here! I love mine, and I would love it even more if it was at this price. I also use it as my DAC, and I intend to keep it that way until I can make the jump to a separate DAC and streamer.

    Tell your wife you are just renting it, indefinitely. That way you will have kept your word lol.

    I was considering the 851N refurbs on ebay direct from Cambridge for a while. I looked through a lot of reviews and didn't see any reason for concern about the refurbs based on that feedback. Seems like a solid buy here.

    I don't think its really that surprising. Yes, Bob's a great seller, and yes this is a great deal. BUT, this community has gotten very small compared to pre-vanilla. Hope it sells here, but it might take some time...

    The "c" does not mean any cosmetic issues. I am in no hurry to sell this item. So everything is cool.

    I received a message about the appearance of the item, so I updated with pictures.

    Happy for you Dave! I was actually tempted to get this for the garage rig! No more streaming via BT! :)
