    Awesome that I bought a close-out one for $679 just over a week ago.

    Edit 7/6/22: Schiit Audio generously and kindly refunded me the difference. I'm most grateful to them for doing so. I ought not to have posted the above before giving Schiit time to respond - thanks for the suggestion @Merrick, I'd emailed them - and I regret the fit of pique. It was good of them to issue the refund.

    That's rough. The math is still screwed up on the site. You can buy a new one w/DAC for less than the closeout unit currently listed.

    Edit: different DAC, I think? Nevermind.

    If it’s within a week just email them and ask if they can refund you the difference.

    AIO streamer+DAC in Canada: distributor clearance of the Volumio Primo Hi-Fi edition (ie including a lifetime Volumio Superstar subscription): $CAD 499, which is ~EUR 373 vs the EUR 649 price direct from Volumio.

    https://www.everestaudio.com/volumio-primo-hi-fi-edition--clearance.html

    Other AIO streamers for comparison: iFi Zen Stream price is $CAD 599, Pi2Design Mercury is $US 599. I haven't seen SQ comparisons of the Primo vs either of these, or heard any of the 3 myself - but it seems to me the Primo's internal DAC (optional; also has coax S/PDIF out) and included Superstar subscription could add significant value for people whose use case could include either or both.

    Did Sennheiser stop Romanian production?

    The Sennheiser line was that the move to Romania would allow for modernization of production, if I recall. Reminds me of when Newcastle beer moved to the Netherlands...

    Complete Beethoven on CD from Naxos. The alternative is the similarly-priced Brilliant Classics set.* Naxos should have consistently better sound, if that matters to you. It should also have somewhat better liner notes.

    * The previous Brilliant Classics set (2017) seems to have better performances than their slightly newer compilation (2019).

    Nobody cares about sound here. Fake news.
