    Thanks for the suggestion Mike, but I donít see what a Pi would give me over and above my Micro Server?

    I have now set up Logitech Media Server on the server, with a softsqueeze player, using iPeng through my IOS devices, and I am very happy with it.
    Best bit is that it has cost me just the price of the app.

    When the novelty has worn off, I may look at improving things.

    How much of a step up from a Caiman II GFU is a supercap modified SEG?

    Your PD-S703 is a nice player and a close relative to the PD-S505 Precision I use and I'm sure that with the right DAC the sound quality can be very good. I run a Monarchy Audio M22B DAC with mine and the combination sounds superb.

    I am happy to say that the Super cap SEG has made a nice difference.
    There will possibly be a Caiman II up for sale shortly, although I may keep it as a pre-amp for a second system.
