Couldn't agree more. If I knew how important GAPLESS is prior to purchasing the Audiolab 6000N streamer (my first streamer) I would not have bought it.
I do have to give it top marks for sound quality though. If you ignore the lack of gapless and its finicky OS I'd have to say it does sound very very good. Hard to beat at it's price point (even 3 times its price).
