    Has anyone used Maverick Audio's TubeMagic with an SBT?

    Although I'm not a tweaker by nature, I've been thinking lately about things I can do to improve the sound of the SBT.

    Has anyone used this DAC with a Squeezebox?

    looks like snakeoil to me. At least they put "upgrade" in quotes. At least it's relatively cheap. Some companies put it in a milled aluminum case and charge $50,000.

    Just bear in mind that it only does 24/96 so it won't play high res stuff.

    I would serch for a better value product myself, one could always run the output through a valve buffer if one wants the "magic"
