I decided to take the jump and got Allo's new katana dac, with the 
isolation board.
I've yet to connect it to my ripped cd's but streaming (with moode) the 
soma fm stations
i'm blown away. Streaming spotify i'm less impressed. I'm assuming 
something with the quality of spotify's streaming client? I've noticed 
some UI lag with moode that volumio didn't have so maybe i just need to 
jump to 5.0 beta?

i'm currently running it thru my old school, crufty botthead s.e.x amps 
driving some 4" full range diy book shelf's in my home office.
