Has anyone picked one of these little guys up? I know a lot of people on HiFi Guides are always looking for a nice, cute, cheap streamer and this one might very well be the best bang for your buck and you can get it for under $250 shipped, ready to go out of the box and shipped.
Excellent little streamer with a very very solid DAC hat. Also tests well according to ASR for those that are into that kind of thing. You can have it come with DietPi installed already and it’ll be seen by ROON (for those with it) right away.
If you’re looking for a set it and forget it streamer thats mad cheap…you’ve found it.
As for performance…listen man, its a Raspberry Pi streamer. This one has a well reviewed DAC hat. I think it sounds better than a RPi4 with a HifiBerry DigiPro hat to an SMSL SU8 being sent through speakers and the Boss2 is cheaper by around a hundred bucks all-in.
High recommendation if you need a streamer and I probably wouldn’t recommend another until you get 2-3-4x the price and you want the features, pretty aesthetics, etc. that come with the higher end streamer. Would definitely recommend this over Bluesound Node 2i and all of the other streamers in that sub $750 range.
