For $90 maybe. But I think between the Apple dongle, the E1DA, and other value players I am not sure how this will compare. Would be interesting to see.

Would love to see the avantone guass 7. looks like their own woofer and what i think is a now disconnected dayton amt or similar design.

Streaky mastering YouTube channel did a subjective review and I thought it was curious he mentioned he turned the hf level up. can't recall the last time I heard a speaker that needed that, its usually down. Might be on the softer side of tonality and that has me interested.
