Gaia denafrips DDC, use with a chord tr2 dac?
But what if i dont have danafrips dac?  Seems this family does better as a group.  Like the vontrapp family.  
Upscale Audio and Primaluna
Seems lots of repairs inolving fuses and dealing with issues.Dont want any PL gear if i always need parts.it all sales.  I remember Crazy Eddie from 20 yrs ago.  Just dont like pushy sales people who push gear with higher margins and biased.  Not ... 
Upscale Audio and Primaluna
So how can anyone be comfortable with a primaluna recommendation from uptone?  For the price its probably pretty good but other things he sells that cost a hell of alot more may be alot better.  Who else sells prima?  I might have considered a pri... 
What do $2500 speaker cables sound like?
To me its all sooo convuluded.It seems an understanding of how the signal is lessened as it progresses thru a cable.therefore, to minmize this, it requires great design to overcome complex tech challenges, and this costs money, otherwise we could ... 
Clocker value on a network player?
Do chord dacs do a good job with jitter? 
Clocker value on a network player?
What about the chord tt?Asynchronous vs synchronous, another good thing to understand.usb causes the dac to do its clocking thing without involving the player.  And if dac has good power, this all tends to marginalize the player impact. 
Clocker value on a network player?

Anybody use an LPS with a processor?

Why dont more standalone DACs come with ethernet???
I dont like happy meals, i like to buy it all separate.  Focus is the streamer in its purist form.  Is it a network player?  Doing only bit stream conversion? 
Why dont more standalone DACs come with ethernet???
Brilliant reply, last paragraph key.so bit stream conversion necessary before reaching the dac.  A network player does this.  Dont want a streamer as it comes with lots of extra stuff i dont want.  What about the rendering process, related to bit ...
