At that price, I'm going to pass, I can buy multiple other units (some of which I've already done) to meet my needs.
Based on this thread, there is a small niche of 5.1 analog out / use it as a preamp people, so I'll let one of them snag it.
At $500 the 103 and then the 203 were outstanding values. Beyond that point, one must really value the extras the 20x line brought.
The 205 combines a high quality UHD player with a multichannel DAC. If you were to get the same functionality, you would have to purchase the 203 + an exaSound e38. The e38 alone is $3,849.
