If you looking for low cost streamer- there are quite a few-

Google Chromecast Audio
Pioneer N-50A
Cambridge Audio CXN
Cambridge Azur 851N
Cambridge Audio Stream Magic 6 V2
Cocktail

Actually it depends on your preference- using a mini- fanless PC is the best solution- the sound quality is not bad- if u want a dedicated streamer- then have to pay a bit more- there is always a trade off- sound quality vs cost.

Value for money version is Micro rendu or SMS 200- about $700. LPS just get from Alvin1188  or littlemart- which i buy from both of them- less than $160.

Total cost outlay is less than $1000. Contact the below website to source for value for money stuff.

Skeptical coz all the items discussed always cost a lot - no discussesion of good value for money aka reasonable budget items - visit overseas forums and you can see the discussion for both high and lo budget items - not high, and even higher cost items only

A busy week with the arrival of Sotm Ultra & sPS 500 power supply. I have not audition any of Sotm streamer- just take it with a leap of faith- that this is a worthwhile investment.  Without any doubt- this is a value for money- streamer- far exceeded my expectation given the price point compare to those high end brand.

Very clear- transparent- bass is really good- analogue sounding no trace of digital "sound" natural- every night is "live" Jazz for me- a very good synergy with the rest of my sound system- significant improvement over my fanless mini.

Use mainly for Spotify & some rip CD.



Test track for all Bro in XP- Please play loud- very shiok - if you have set up your sound system properly - invest a good Dac & streamer- u will not regret it.

USBridge I find it quite good overall. I do not have chance to do a real time AB test though. It's for sure better than just rpi USB out.
