Yes, amazing catch. You can always add a streamer later if you want to go that way. It looks like the 840C even has digital inputs, so you could get a very basic, inexpensive streamer that would...

Ohhh! Running speaker cable between rooms shouldn't be a problem. And... does either integrated amp have dual speaker outputs or zones? Then you would only need one of the amps.

My favorite ripper is db Power Amp (link) (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/). Super easy and reputation for excellent quality. It costs a little bit, but you get a 21 day trial. Worth trying just to see...

Well, FWIW, I used the "Server" input. I can see the files on my NAS and was able to play flac without problem. You are using the USB input, but I'd be surprised if that made a difference.

If you don't get any definitive responses, I'll try playing flac files from my NAS through my Onkyo 5508 pre/pro after work (I use a dedicated streamer and haven't tried this with the pre/pro). Very...

Steve,

1.5 way I believe is more accurate.

It does come down to the amp evidently. I'm yet to see what the designer says about its capabilities in this application. I suspect he will say...

Don,

I don't have taps for different impedance. I'm going to consult with the amp designer and get the scoop from his end about this. This is one I wish I could go to a showroom with my amp and...

I would do the trial or free version of BubbleUPnP and see if it will control that for you. I don't have a drive directly attached so don't know for sure.

BubbleUPnP is for android only. I've...

It does have USB 3.0, but these interfaces I'm looking at don't. For digitizing vinyl, I don't think there is any advantage anyway. The extra bandwidth wouldn't be used.
