Just about any Bluesound product you are going to want to use a good DAC as that is its weakest link, especially the older Vault models.

I don’t see any info on a trade in program. My guess they had a few returns but majority is NOS. They might have let dealers return the previous units in exchange for the current model and now the discounted price.
I have no plans to use the built in DAC and not sure my area has 5G anyway and question it’s going to make much of a difference. Think I’ll take a chance on a refurbished unit as if I decide to sale it later I probably will not lose much if any.
I didn't mean 5g wireless, but 5ghz wifi signal. There are 2 bands, 2.5 and 5ghz. The latter is less used and offers higher transfer rates, but with a lesser range of coverage.
I got a Netgear 5ghz adapter for my Node 1. It works like a charm.
No trade in program. Refurbished might have been units they replaced to to some malfunction under warranty.
