    Matrix Audio X-SABRE Pro MQA: Best Audio DAC in the World?

    Anyone know if it displays "MQA" when you play MQA via Roon? IT's got the little info screen, I was hoping it would but mine doesn't. The kHz change to match Roon.

    Is Benchmark AHB2 power a good buy for me?

    Yes ok thank you. Having spent a few hours researching Class D, I'm now torn lol I also live in the UK so the BenchMark was going to be hand luggage at Christmas lol I'm liking the look of both the boXem and AudioPhonics, particularly as they are EU based too.

    Network streamer, USB or I2S output? Feeding into Matrix Audio Sabre Pro.

    I've just got myself a new DAC, Matrix Audio Sabre Pro and I'm looking at various network streamers to act as the Roon endpoint and feed my new DAC.
