Default Back to the AudioAf Fam

Hi again AudioAf Fam.

When my little girl was born 5.5 years ago, I became scarce on this forum, let my membership lapse, lost touch with my audio system for anything other than watching PG movies, etc.

Little girl is finally getting more self sufficient, I'm becoming reacquainted with my stereo (for playing something other than Frozen 2 soundtracks), and I again have the itch to upgrade my various systems.

First component up is to replace the Esoteric DAC with something which will work asynchronously (USB) with the latest MacOS / Mac Mini.

Perhaps the DAC just needs a firmware flash or something, but heck with it, I'll throw it on another system and move onto a DAC with more capabilities (ideally RoonReady, ethernet input capability, and MQA). Budget is $6k or so. I've been looking at the SimAudio Moon 390 Network Player here: https://simaudio.com/en/product/390-...-preamplifier/ for no other reason than it will match the SimAudio Moon monoblocks in my rack. Not a great reason to select something.

I’ve missed you!

Need recommendations!
