After reading this thread , ordered one from amazon for $63 the other day .....
Curiosity got the better of me ....

I have a few rigs I’m gonna try it on ...

Yamaha wxc-50 feeding SIRIUSXM via coax - bypassing the yammys dac -into a Cambridge 851n ( used as a preamp and tidal hifi streaming ) into a PS Audio S300 feeding Salk Supercharged Song Towers .... the main rig ... want to compare it to the wxc50 feeding the 851n AND directly feeding the S300 .....

Also want to see how it sounds feeding the DAYENS Ampino integrated amp feeding bookshelf speakers - my main reason for buying....

Also directly feeding the Parasound A21 and Polk sda 1c’s .... which presently has a wxc-50 feeding the Parasound directly in preamp mode - which sounds pretty good btw .....

I’m also curious to see how it compares to the Yamaha when using the internal dacs in pre-amp mode for both , and when bypassing the internal dac and using as a transport only ...

Just insanely curious on this due to its low price ......
May be a good chromecast audio substitute with far more functionality.....
If it sucks , I’ll return it .... but I do need a source for the Ampino for my sons room ....


It’ll be a few days , but I’ll update .....

    Running it directly into the Ampino and the 1c’s now .....

    Verdict - it does what it’s supposed to do .
    WiFi connection , streaming tidal natively via its app ...
    Sounds pretty damn good for 60 bucks ...

    Not as good as the wxc-50 into the Ampino .. depth , soundstage , separation and imaging not as good , but wholly acceptable for 60 bucks .
    I’m sure the internal dac is not nearly as good as the wxc-50’s , which is pretty good from what I gather .

    It DOES sound noticeably better using the Mconnect app streaming Tidal via UpNP....
    It will stream Tidal high Rez using Mconnect app.

    Has plenty of output voltage to drive the Ampino.

    Overall , it’s certainly not an audiophile grade device ( wouldn’t expect it to be ) , but it certainly would be great for a secondary system - garage , bedroom , kitchen etc...

    It does not have a network standby function, and no on/off ability from the app .
    It does have a sleep timer however ...

    It does have analog rca out, digital coax and optical out , subwoofer out ,
    3.5mm in - for iPhone I presume , and a wired LAN input.
    Lots of functionality.

    App is ok , although there are other apps in App Store that are better and work.

    Body is cheap plastic.


    ‘Ya get what ‘ya pay for I guess ...

    It’s a keeper for what I intend it to do - provide an inexpensive source for the Ampino that’s in my sons room....

    Here’s a couple pics for size reference...

    THANKS AGAIN VERB !!
