My Boston Acoustics Radio stopped working
The Sangean RCR-20 FM-RDS (RBDS) AM/Bluetooth/Aux-in/USB Phone Charging Digital Tuning Clock Radio with Battery Backup looks possible.   http://www.sangean.com/products/product.asp?mid=221&cid=7 
My Boston Acoustics Radio stopped working
@three_easy_payments, Thank you for your suggestion above.  I originally purchased 2 Boston Acoustics Receptor clock radios.  The first radio stopped working about five years ago and the 2nd radio also stopped working.  I prefer not to buy a 3rd B... 
Ended my Qobuz subscription
@facten, I am sorry for the confusion.  Yes, the above link takes you to a Qobuz login page since a Qobuz Subscription is required to see the Qobuz playlists.    
Qobuz
@gdnrbob, As I posted above, I was a beta tester for Qobuz and have requested Qobuz sort by artist options, etc. since I started beta testing earlier this year. I know they are working on the sort API and other similar improvements.  Unfortunately... 
Integrated amp
@toneranger58,  The list price for the SimAudio 700i V2 amp is $14,000 (US$). You might find a retailer offering a lower price on a demo unit.   
Integrated amp
My retailer told me that SimAudio offered to “buy back” my 6+ month old SimAudio 600i V2 integrated amplifier at “full price” in exchange for a new SimAudio 700i V2 Integrated amp.  After a long conversation with my retailer, I decided to accept h... 
Qobuz
I was a beta tester for Qobuz and like it very much.  Its album selection is acceptable and you can always find something to listen to.  I especially like their hi-res albums (24/96 and 24/192).  I dropped Tidal streaming since I was always listen... 
Qobuz.
@cleeds,  I was streaming Qobuz and the sound quality was poor and I was getting dropouts.  I called my Cable Company and they said the cable signal needs to be in a certain frequency signal range and my signal was LOWER than it should be (meaning...

Node2i + Qutest or Yggy or Codex or something else
+1, I also agree with Bob's recommendation above.  The Ayre Codex DAC sounds wonderful and is from a company with excellent customer service.  
Node2i + Qutest or Yggy or Codex or something else
Do you have a budget for a new DAC? As noted above, are you able to hear any of these products at your local audio store? The best way to decide is for you to hear it. Please note that I replaced my Parasound Hint 6 Integrated amp (after owning it... 
Qobuz Users Update?
Qobuz has 117 available playlists and they are terrific. For example, listen to Prestige 70 Jazz classics for 70 handpicked jazz tracks.  Many of them are in the hi-res format.  This Qobuz playlist is 7 hours and 38 minutes long. This makes listen...

Bricasti M1 owners- a question-
@rsf507, The sigma delta DAC and the ladder DAC are both excellent.  After switching back and forth, I prefer the ladder DAC.  It is smoother and the music sounds more natural to me.   These differences are not huge but I do most of my listening t... 
Bricasti M1 owners- a question-
@rsf507, I never considered the Bricasti M12 Dual Mono Source Controller since I ONLY needed a DAC.  I am using the SimAudio 700i V2 integrated amplifier and use its volume control.   Based on my experience, I prefer to use the volume control in t...
