Hi. I don't have experience with this unit, but have had Rotel amp/pre/cd player and I'm somewhat familiar with PC audio so will try and help.
It does look like an all-in one solution. Not sure that's a good thing in digital, though.
To answer your question: for best performance in streaming music from a computer you should also consider adding a USB to SPDIF converter between the computer and this unit, so to minimize jitter coming into the Rotel DAC.
$1000 is significant money in digital these days, so I invite you to think carefully what you value most. Do you really need all the features in the Rotel? For that kind of money you can get a decent DAC and USB converter and access radio thru the computer.
I hope it helps some until someone with actual experience with this unit chimes in.
