    Yes, Andre, you'll definitely be right about the PSU. I intend to do whatever I can to make the RPi as popular on AoS, as the Techy is! And for good reason, as stated before.

    However, just because you wouldn't entertain using one (for your own justified reasons), which I respect, doesn't mean that others won't do differently, for their justified reasons, which I would also ask you to respect.

    If you can't do that, dude, then please don't thread-crap, lest I have to remind you of the rules for the trade section of the forum (observing in particular what is written in paragraphs 3 and 4):

    Lol - indeed. I'm of course talking purely in terms of its sonic performance. It would also have to be housed inside a really nice case, for that kind of money. Thing is, how much does a Linn Akurate DS cost? I've heard one, and the Pi/IQ-Audio DAC+ combination unquestionably murders it - and for buttons! £80, to be precise. It's laughable...

    If that doesn't deserve jumping up and down and shouting about, then I don't know what does.

    There's a lot of overpriced streaming crap out there and plenty of bandwagon jumping. I'd say the Pi combo has every reason to be a success and if Gaz can help some of the more technophobic among us get to grips with it then why the hell not.

    Good luck Gaz.
