Sold my SQB touch to forum member and now out in market for a streamer.

Due to the habit of not keeping items more than year, thought of first searching used streamer rather than directly venturing out for new stuff.

Requirement : Any streamers/ network player worth upgrading from squeezebox touch.
Better built-in DAC
Streamer that provide usable android & iPhone app.

Budget: < 40k
 

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Have the Denon DNP 720AE Network player for sale for 15k, abt 8 months old in warranty (1yr). its 30k new.

I had the squeezebox touch before this, comparatively it sounds more clean and fluid with bigger soundstage/ more bass

android app is there, also 3rd party android apps are there, iPhone app should be there too...

What was your reason for selling the SB Touch? You could have added a good DAC to it. The big advantage I see in SB Touch or Duet is to be able to browse and select songs from the device (or remote in the case of duet) itself. Most of the other players need to be connected to a display or used via ios/android app.

BTW, the Marantz streamer's prices have drastically dropped...worth considering. Also saw Olive 2/4HD on sale from Olive on Audiogon.

There is no specific reason. One reason is that normally I wont keep "affordable" Hi-fi items more than a year or two. Second reason is upgrade bug....:)

Coming to the Marantz Streamer, it is no longer available in India for reduced price.

Closing the thread, bought Denon DNP-720AE.

Pioneer sales confirmed they do not sell Elite N-50 in India.
All other options are way too expensive,

I was looking for something in 30-50K, Unexpectedly got a tempting offer from profx. I didn't even go for an audition, got it delivered at doorstep.

It is an upgrade worth of every penny, As per the initial impression DAC is superior to CA DACMagic

Price - sent a PM
