What is the price of the K50?
It’s a shame the Brinkmann’s weak link (no pun intended) is the ethernet link.
It would be interesting to compare the K50 vs Innuos over the network, functioning as a Roon server.
I have not auditioned the VdH Stad in my system. I only tried the Colibri (XGP IIRC).
Back then, I couldn't get it to work properly in my setup. It was very sibilant and bright sounding. As well as being extremely finicky with tracking.
