    GUSTARD DAC-R26 - anyone use it with LMS?

    Is it possible to use this with LMS through UPnP/DNLA? Seems interesting.

        Offering HDMI socket to run I2S (which they call IIS) looks to me like something that could go wrong when the listener plugs a real HDMI device into hole.

        This is an analysis of I²S interface to see if it is superior to S/PDIF or USB interconnects for audio DACs. From what I recall, it was PS Audio that popularized I²S for external DAC connections. Phillips (now NXP) had invented I²S years early as an internal protocol to route audio. It was...

          Yup, and it has no standard. A lot of bother for no improvement.

              It seems it gets favourable reviews in some places and the Gustard website has MQA added to the R26. Hope LMS will be added soon.

                Ordered the Gustard R26 to be delivered next week if OOPS can avoid damaging it in transit. Will report back when the expectation bias has settled. Hope it works through DNLA/UPnP and hoping for LMS support in the future...

                      Hello!
                      I use the streamer in the Gustard R26. Works fine with the UPnP plugin.
                      Replace four boxes with one.
