Hifi Rose RS150B
If it's better than the D2, then it's at least on par with the T2 which is a good thing. Keep us posted as it breaks in more :)  
My thoughts on the HiFi Rose 150B

Hifi Rose RS150B
Congrats. My only fear with the HIFI Rose is for $5k you are in the Lumin T2 area of price. With the HFR bells and whistles (screens, etc), is the audio portion compromised a bit to keep cost In line? I would love a comparison

@larry5729 I had the Node 2 for a year it was great although the internal Dac was fair compared to my Pro-Ject Pre Box s2 digital dac. As a streamer, I would probably still be using it, however, it does not pass thru DSD file without conversion. I...
