Best benefit for me is that I can use a external USB DAC (which has only USB input) for WiiM. 😀😀

Honestly don’t see the point of having comments and questions on this blog when there’s an active and helpful forum where many of the queries posted here have already been discussed.

As for the "Grounding port"


  • Use 3.5mm mono jack? if yes, connect ( + OR - ) contactor?

  • Do you provide power cable with grounding wire and jack?

Will there be a streamer-transport only version? Without dac or amp, with I2S or AES/EBU digital outputs.

There are tons of dacs on the market and Rose and Auralic are the only brands to offer this solution, at top prices!
