I'm about to return a pair of MM-1s since they apparently don't work with Windows 8. Considering an Airmotiv as a replacement but looks like they're all unavailable from Emotiva - any idea what's going on there? Are they retiring this line?
Didn't realize there was one, but thanks for the tip!
Thanks but isn't that the opposite converter? i.e. takes a USB stream and turns it into coax or optical, rather than the other way around?
OK, so my main stereo system is a Peachtree Nova fed by a Sonos by optical link and a Synology NAS drive by USB link (for occasional playing of 24/96 files which Sonos doesn't support). Just moved into a bigger house and want to set up some additional Sonos zones with less expensive setups. I have my eye on the Outlaw RR2150, which looks like a beautiful piece of equipment.

Greetings all - Like a few previous posters on this thread I stumbled across it in a search for info about the Nova. The posts here have been exceptionally helpful and Dave Solomon & co. are clearly a class act with an obvious love of their craft, exactly the kind of outfit I'd like to support. I'm re-doing my entire system to say good-bye to CDs and upgrading the thing all around - replaced my 15-year-old Cambridge Soundworks satellite system with a pair of B&W 684s,...
