HelloLooking at Kinki and Aelius, these are quite matchup for the X-SABRE. And what is the control of the sabre, no glitches? Have you used a trigger? I still consider this as only combo of DAC with streamer, which is worth of buying, but not sure if it is not better to go with a dedicated dac and Roon Nucleus. Thanks!
I said "no issues", it means no issues . Volume control is OK as all digital volume controls in 32 bits and correct implementation. I never use triggers. I do not have yet tested external drives and I am not sure that I will do it. All modern DAC are coming with a network input. It is up to you do decide to use an external drive.
