High end streamer/server profound choice
@jumia - I also came to the same conclusion to simplify rather than have all those boxes and cables.  However, I'll still get an audiophile ethernet switch for the sonic uptick.   
Mega dollar systems. 200k on up. What are their professions?

A phenomenal new CD transport-Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 transport
