Review on Tekton Design Perfect Set Speaker just went live on Six Moons.com
I liked the review but every time I go to the 6moon site I am reminded why I rarely go there. I get a headache just trying to look past the maze of ads and pictures and drop down menu that keeps getting in the way. Oyeve! Of course my ad blocker d... 
Yes, it plays mp3 files. I did a test and played some mp3 files from both a thumb drive connected to the front USB and from my PC using MinimServ. I have not played any music via Bluetooth.  
@jackdThanks for that. I downloaded the Lumin app and it looks like the exact same app! I see it has a lot of instructions on its use on the Lumin site. 
@canibefrankPage 13 of NT-505 manual, "You can use the upconversion function with all input sources."A far as where I bought it, I bought it from Crutchfield.com because of their return timeline. 
Review of TEAC NT-505
Oops, and thanks. Yep, still trying to get a handle on all this internet plumbing.Hey, do you guys down under celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day? I bet you all would be good at it. 
Does this exist? Preamp/Streamer/DAC with MQA, Roon and more
TEAC NT-505 meets all your requirements except for HDMI input. 
Do you listen to equipment or music.
  The Audiophile community makes up a super set that is composed of two subgroups, Equipment-philes and Music-philes. These subsets do have a union as many audiophiles belong to both groups. Those who belong to the Music-phile group are in it for...

Hey RICH Audiophiles
@ghasleyI think you just made my point better than I did.  
Hey RICH Audiophiles
The real question is why do rich audiophiles buy exorbitantly high priced systems when there are so many less expensive options to achieving equal or even better sound? Wealthy / successful people are usually focused on end state results, not twee... 
BUY Bryston!!!!!
Add Modwright to the list. Dan usually gets on the phone himself when he is in the office and recently he serviced a SWL 9.0SE preamp that I bought used and was years out of warranty and he repaired it at cost. 
Highest BUILD quality tube amps?
Another advantage of P to P wired ( NO pcb's) tube amps is they are easier to diagnos and repair without a schematic diagram. So if you need to have it repaired you can take it to a good local guitar amp repair tech.  
Catastrophic Accident! What To Do!?
Please clarify. Did it "only" tip / roll over on the tubes and smash all 12 or did it actually fall off a table and really sustain some damage beyond broken tubes? If you just smashed all tubes then you should be able to find a local guitar amp re... 
Where do cables upgrades have the most impact?
Well...after reading everyone’s responses what I surmise is that opinions differ because everyone’s system is different and cable upgrades impact systems differently. So...the old audio adage of you have to try it and see how it sounds to you in y... 
Anyone streaming Tidal via their Oppo UDP-203?
Thank you. Yes, after further research I see that. Oppo only references Tidal streaming for it's 10x products.
