I came upon this article this morning and find it fascinating reading. Mr. Day makes a compelling case for seeking out gear with which one can enjoy a large variety of music, the "Listening Window".

Michael Lavorgna is preparing a review of the d1-tube (2020 edition) with embedded streamer board option + Totaldac digital cables.
This system will be reviewed for the first time.
This system is compact, not too expensive and gives full digital experience (Roon Ready or UPNP and more).
The review will be released in Twittering Machines web site...

IMHO an audiophile switch is a mandatory components for all CAS audiophiles.
My favourite audiophile switches in the current market are SOtM sNH-10G, Melco S-100 and Telegartner M12 Gold.

They possess diff sonic characters and if used in a dual-switch config, the mix&match of their sonics can make all CAS audiophiles happy.
