Woww..!!! Well Spent Money.€... !!!

I'm an happy user of an Arylic S50 Pro that I used to play Hi-Res contents from Amazon Music Unlimited with Android smartphones.

Used in BT mode 'cause I'ld use original Amazon App and above all , Poweramp Equalizer that allowed me a perfect frequencies setup.

Attracted by the new Up2Steam HD DAC , which promised better sound performance with a new ESS DAC and moreover "No Downsampling".. 1: 1 reproduction.

After some time I broke the delay and took it, completed with its beautiful case and replaced the S50 Pro .

Wooahhww ... !!! never purchase has proved more appropriate ...!

Used in Wi-Fi mode (here the difference with BT is noticeable), the effect does not resemble a Streamer replacement. Much more .. as if I had changed the whole HI-FI composition from good but basic brands to HI-END McKintosh compositions or similar ... !!!

My old Pioneer 6500 Mk.II Amp connected to a basic EQ Beringher FQB 800 and to KEF Q55 Mk.II standfloor speakers, with new Up2Stream HD DAC are able to give "Best of Themselves" with a Quality never heard before, turning into a New Life.

With Volume knob at 1 1/2 my Old Hi-Fi reproduces a real "Wall of Sound". Impressive power and clarity of sound, perfect channel separation, accurate balancing of output for different Instruments and Voices, details and clarity never heard before.

Creation of a Powerful and Detailed Soundstage with Voices & Instruments emissions perfectly distinguishable & integrated with each others .. !!!

Well .. listen Freddy Mercury singing "Love of my Life" closing my eyes... gives the impression of having "now" Queen in Concert directly in my living room .. !!!

Wouwhh .. Really Awesome ... !!!

My sincere congratulations to Fran who studied and implemented the creation of this "Jewel" and to Joy who, as always, took care of the order & delivery phases in an impeccable way.

If someone want to play his Old Hi-Fi with an unsuspected quality, never heard before...purchase of Up2Stream HD DAC Card is a real blessing, the most well-spent money with truly effective and detectable effects at first listening of any Know Song.

Only a prayer to Fran..add the direct access to Amazon Music App, as is for Spotify and Tidal yet.

Up2Stream HD DAC .... try it and .. you won't be able to do without it anymore . A True (Good) Addiction .. !!!!

Works great out of box - wish it was more configurable

I purchased an Up2Stream HD DAC and am happy with it... It works right out of the box. Wish I could configure the I2S output settings though.

Good device

Very good device. Perfect as streamer. Easy setup. Very nice app. I use wiim pro plus too, but 4stream I like more. Sound is a meter of taste, but sounds good to me. It's always possible to connect external DAC. I use TIDAL HiFi plus ant Tunein and everything works fine. It is possible to have a perfectly working device at a really low price.

Great hardware, FW needs some improvements

Sound quality is very good. Clean, rich sound when playing Tidal or Internet radios. Far better that other network devices I own, based on A31 modules or Silicon Froniter.
So it conceals temporary flaws.

Cons:
Sporadic glitches/ music skipping appears- restarting device helps for next few hours, so not clitical bug but annoying.

Firmware still lacks some features, hope it will be improved in future to match at least other, older products.
For example: missing +5 or +12 V signal to control on/off my amplifier, web page to store own radio streams, on/off from buttons.
