I paired this with the Edge W amp and the killer Focal 948 speakers based on a recommendation from Crutchfield experts. I hooked up to Ethernet so cannot comment on wireless performance. I have the following sources connected: Qobuz, Spotify, Sonos and a Cambridge Audio CD player. Super easy to pick source from IPhone StreamMagic App. Large display on front showing source, album art and resolution of music. I cannot say enough good things about this unit. I think the Focal 948's would make anything sound good but this unit does a stellar job with the digital music it feeds to the amp/speakers (dont have a turntable). Love it.
Pros: Lots of inputs Easy to use app Pristine DAC

In 50 years of loving my various stereo systems, I just upgraded to the Edge NQ Preamp. OMG, it is an entirely different experience. I love that they selected components based on blind listening sessions. Comparing individual specifications, one might have passed by, but no, this is the real McCoy. I heartily recommend this unit and only regret I don't have the power amplifier to go with. Not only that, the chassis is a work of art. Handsome in any setting for sure. Hats off to the folks at Cambridge Audio.

Everything works as it says on the tin, no complaints at all. It's the main portion of a mostly digital (with a turntable) setup - sound quality is great, works with Roon, Tidal, everything.
Pros: Sound quality, inputs, UI, overall experience
