Hey guys,

I'm going to have to choose a very good streamer music server for Qobuz streaming and local storage music streaming.
Here is a list of the ones that could fit my budget :

Pink Faun 2.16X
Innuos Statement
432 Evo Master
Aurender N10
SGM 2015 Evo
Antipodes EX+CX
Wolf Alpha 3SX
Paul Pang FC10

Which one is the best bang for the buck ?
Please share your experience as most of you own one of them.
Impossible to home audition all of them as you might be aware.
Cheers

hey there, just saw your post while browsing the latest activity section. i have a thread going about my brand spankin new taiko extreme and my older rockna wavedream net. might be something you find interesting. i looked at alot of servers recently so i'm happy to offer advice - forgive me, what is the price point you're aiming for...i don't remember the msrp of some of these units. in my taiko thread, i mentioned that i got both my rockna and taiko from my friend, he also carries innuous and antipodes. happy to put you in touch if that helps

what would you say the split between streaming and local files is for you? i'm like 95% streaming and 5% local so that informed some of my choices as well

I would say 70% streaming 30% local.
Streaming is getting very close to local with the addition of audiophile switchs
Max msrp €14k.
Right now my first pick would be the Pink Faun but i have a couple more months to investigate on the others.
Cheers
