Thoughts about the "Cheapaudioman" on YouTube
Randy seems to be improving as he goes along. He readily admits his mistakes. I think he will be invaluable down the road to newbies. This translates to keeping this hobby alive. IMO.  
Dragonfly Cobalt cuts out after ~5 s.

Node 3 or Better Streamer
I have heard, although with no experience, the ifi Zen Stream has better SQ than the Node. You have to have a dac as Zen Stream is a streamer only. Priced at $399.

@blisshifi  I just left Minneapolis last week to visit relatives. Wish I would have known about you then. Back in Arizona now.
