Pictured above is the Innuos Zen Mini Mk.II XL music server ($1299 w/1TB HDD standard, 2TB HDD available). The fanless Mini can function as network attached storage, CD ripper, and streamer running on "innuOS" (Linux variant). A quad-core Intel CPU with 2GB RAM handles the processing and all of the Zen MKII music servers run Roon Core and offer USB out.

I like Ayre Acoustics. I own their AX-5 Twenty integrated amplifier, have met and interviewed Charley Hansen, and enjoyed their QB-9 DSD DAC and QX-5 Twenty Digital Hub. So it is with great pleasure and anticipation that I share the forthcoming Ayes AX-8 Integrated Amplifier ($TBD but think a double digit % decrease from the AX-5 twenty).

Serbia-based Auris' D2D High End DAC (£3,990) is all leather and walnut niceness so I hate to sully it with 1x USB, 3x Coax (RCA), 3x TosLink, and up to DSD128/32bit/384kHz for USB, max 24bit/192kHz for Coax and Toslink. You can also add Bluetooth or WiFi Airplay/DLNA modules.

Leo can be stereo-paired.
