    Would be great if you could send a sample to Amir at ASR for testing. He has a very large audience of objective audiophiles who would be interested in this.

    We very much respect this publication, but it looks like he is not reviewing digital output products. Once we are in production, we can contact him and find out

    "The DIGI32 wireless music streamer can be connected to a HiFi amplifier, active speakers or soundbar..."
    How is that possible without an analogue line out?

    Plenty of amps, speakers and soundbars have optical or coaxial digital inputs...

    There are both amps, soundbars and active speaker with digital input.

    Some examples:

    Speakers: Dynaudio XD, KEF LS50w2, Kii THREE and Genelec monitors. There are also options like Buchardt Audio, B&O, DALI and System Audio that can take digital input through a hub and send it wireless to their active speakers.

    Soundbars: Sonos Beam, Bluesound PULSE, Denon DHT-S216

    Amps: NAD C368, NAD amp1, NAD M10, Hegel H95, Lyngdorf TDAI-1120

    Yes, he regularly measures digital outputs of devices that have them. Lot of folks wanting a low cost device that "just works" vs having to build one with a RPi, etc. If yours can significantly outperform the dozens of Linkplay-based devices out there (most of which perform miserably), word would spread quickly, as ASR has significant influence among objective audiophiles. Amir is very biased toward Roon, but perhaps if he had a super simple LMS server device to test, as well...

    An example review of a (poorly performing) Linkplay device review, with digital output measured:

    Badly worded.

    Should read "The DIGI32 wireless music streamer can be connected to a HiFi amplifier, active speakers or soundbar that have a built-in DAC".
    Server - LMS 8.3.0 Pi4B 4GB/Argon one case/pCP 8.1.0 - 75K library, playlists & LMS cache on SSD (ntfs)
    Study - Pi4/pCP 8.0.0/Topping E30 DAC/Ruark MR1 Mk2
    Lounge - Pi2/pCP 8.0.0 > HiFiBerry DIGI+ > AudioEngine DAC1 > AVI DM5
    Dining Room - Pi3B/pCP/Bluetooth/Echo Show 8
    Garage - DAC32 > Edifier speakers

    Spares - 2xTouch, 1xSB Radio. 1xSB3, 6xRPi

    Thank you very much indeed for following up on this. You are clearly right on both counts, namely that ASR do review digital output devices and also that DIGI32 will dramatically out-perform the device shown in the link you provided. I would not regard streaming 16 bit from Roon using Airplay as ideal, but Philip says that this is fine, providing that you accept lower performance verses 24 bit. To prove the point, take a look at screen shots of our own measurements, you will see that the plot using Airplay is inferior to a 24 bit stream. But you will also notice that even using Airplay, DIGI32 still massively outperforms the product you referred to.

    Once DIGI32 is in production, we will certainly take your advice to contact Amir and also take the opportunity to send him a CORE32 pre-loaded with 24/96 test tones so he can try using LMS as an alternative source to Roon. We will also send him a DAC32 so he can try all three of our products
