What I’m looking for in a streaming transport
It will probably cost more than $1500 - but the Lumin U1 Mini would meet your requirements.  There is an inexpensive and simple conversion kit available to change out the IEC so you can use an external LPS with it.  Upscale Audio sells one. 
Improving streaming SQ
@calgarian5355  - I was considering adding a switch to my chain that includes the gigafoil v4.But I bought the ENO a few months ago, and it was an uplift in SQ.  Very happy with the surprising results - knowing how the gigafoil works.At first, I w... 
LSA Voyager GAN Amplifier
Keep it coming, YYZ - you have 2 amps that I've been interested in for a while (Benchmark and Coda), and possibly now a third with the LSA.   I'm considering to move to separates from my integrated.I appreciate your feedback.  A very interesting c... 
Mojo Audio Mystique EVO
Just got my EVO back from Mojo Audio.  I had the the Sparkos opamps changed to the Staccato's Ben is now using in the '21 version.It's an improvement to my ears.  Not a change in character, but a small but noticeable refinement in detail and coher...

My EVO B4B is en route from Mojo Audio right now.  I had the opamps upgraded from Sparkos to the current Staccatos they use today in the '21 version. I'll post my impressions soon.FWIW, I feed the EVO from a DCS Network Bridge using AES - BlackC...

Congrats, @c_avila1  "In the zone" - a great description.If you don't mind, what interconnects are you using with your EVO?I recently switched to Cerius Graphene Matrix, which in my system, is was a great match.

New EVO review up at Enjoy the Music. 
Improving streaming SQ
@rareace , I didn't do a formal A/B with LPS on the router.   But I remember a slight uplift in SQ.  At the time, I was using Netgear Powerline adaptors to get ethernet to my streamer from the router. (this uses house electrical wire to send packe... 
Mojo Audio Mystique EVO
@mitch2  - yes, I did own the V3 for about 2 years before getting the EVO.  I was extremely happy with it, and wasn't considering a new dac at all.  I couldn't imagine better.   To my ears, the EVO brings more of what the V3 does so well, from top...

I'm guessing there might be a few more EVO owners out there now.  Anyone care to provide their experience?Mine continues to impress, especially the microdetails and realism from top to bottom - but really I'm just sitting back and enjoying the mus... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
@mitch2 A few weeks ago, I brought my EVO to a fellow Agon members home so he could hear it in his system.  He also uses a DX L3 and @grannyring 's "double-smoked" USB cable.   Th EVO sounded *excellent* in this member's system - which is very nic... 
Ayre Codex vs. ESS SABRE ES9010K2M (Yamaha AS801)
Congrats on the A-S801, @soundchasr.  I've had one for a number of years in a second system, and think it is a great value.  Read the 6moons review on it if you haven't already - "The A-S801 pounds hard on that HighEnd door."  The variable loudnes... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
@mitch2  - agree with everything you say about the importance of power sections - and Ben does a great job there.   The EVO weights 29 pounds!  Definitely trial the EVO if you can.  PM me if you live in Florida - maybe we can connect.  I'm bringin... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
A 2nd recommendation to check out the Mojo Audio Mystique EVO dac.  R2R, $6k for base model that can be upgraded in a lot of ways.  Good review here:https://www.audiophilia.com/reviews/2020/5/21/sigmanmojoevodacI've owned it for a couple months.  ...
