Most convenient audio device

A Roon Endpoint. Masterful sound reproduction, layered, deep, resounding playback. All the best options to modify the EQ and Crossfeed on the device itself. I've taken it to work, I've used it all over my home. I've used my phones hotspot to stream tidal and qobuz. WIFI is the best performance for streaming. The file transfer to the unit via USB C is speedy, and playback from the devices 256gb nand solid state hard drive are effortless. It has allowed me to unpair my headphones from my desktop rig, and STILL maintain excellent sound. I have a HUGO 2, the iFi Gryphon and PRO iDSD Signature, as well as Schiit Gungnir all through a Freya into a Valhalla 2 Tube Amp. But I still prefer the CA1000 to the HUGO2 (without the 2go), as my method of listening to music around my home away from my desktop. Reproduction reaches near the quality of the iDSD. The Gungnir still produces the best sound closely followed by the HUGO2. But CA1000 can be completely wireless, is ONE unit, has a large color touch screen. It streams ROON easily, and fluently. It is the most convenient audio device I have in my collection.

Pros: Excellent sound. Fantastic build quality. Well thought out android based A&K OS, easy wireless connections, ROON endpoint, tidal, qobuz, even Apple music compatible.

Cons: Will have to disassemble when the battery eventually dies to replace.
