Resonessence Labs Concero HD, Concero HP, Veritas, Invicta, Herus.

Few of the guys are former ESS company engineers, they claim that they know best the chips and making relatively cheap high end stuff.

Also there are a few cheap SMSL amplifier, like Sap-8, Sap-9, Sap-10etc.
Maybe the many littleDot amplifier would be interesting to check.

As they make/made an AVR worthy of purchase, the Denon DNP-800NE streamer maybe?

I am new to this site, but I have been reading a lot here for months, so for me would be interesting to see:

Emotiva BasX A-100
and some Peachtree int amp, the DAC stage mostly for me.
I have both of these as well, and would be interested in seeing them measured.

Hi,

I am new to the forum.

May I suggest the Audioengine HDP6 (Passive)?

This is an affordable speaker that got some good reviews.

How about this $30 DAP?
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QHQ79XH/

Don't laugh. This is a very nice device for $30. Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.WDC9xx DAC. Android 8. LG made, easily replaceable battery.

Simply throw away the Net10 sim card and stuff - use on WiFi without it. Install BubbleUpnp to access external servers/libraries..

Really curious to see how the DAC compares to the default single DAC in the G7 test.. But can also be used with OTG cable and external DAC

Jean Marie Reynaud Bliss. Very good reputation in France, same transparency philosophy as Revel, but expensive...

How about testing the toslink out of smart tvs that have chromecast built-in? Am presently using that as a source to stream Tidal in one of my rooms. I can also access local files over LAN using bubbleupnp.

I would like to see Emotiva products like PA-1 and Nuprime products like the STA-9 amplifiers.

Unfortunately I live in Sweden so it would be quite costly (and maybe greater risk of damage) to ship my own.. but hopefully someone living closer can ship them.
