So many great golden era DD tables out there, what do you recommend for $1000?

Best budget streamer on the market now?
I’d buy the BlueSound Node 2i all over again if I needed another one. Tidal MQA is rendered very nicely and non-MQA is ok for casual listening.

First impressions on unboxing the Node 2i:”I wonder how much this fancy box and cloth bag that the Node 2i came in cost me?”“I hope the crappy throw-away interconnect cables that are included didn’t cost me much””Why would they fold the CAT5e cabl...
