New DAC is just around the corner

Apple .. you have a problem with overheating.  I can say this with 100% confidence, as the screen on my iPhone has lifted-off from the actual unit, because of the heat emanating out from it. This is a huge problem for me, as that is my primary source for streaming (in conjunction with an AudioQuest Dragonfly). So .. what to do?  Well, as the iPhone is nada, I need a new streaming device .. an iPad will do nicely as a replacement (bigger unit compared to the iPhone, less heating issues). I ‘could’ use the AudioQuest again, but .. that’s capped at 24/96 and I want to go sooo much higher.  That’s where Cambridge Audio’s new DacMagic 200M comes in.  It’s relatively inexpensive at £449 and goes way-up in the MQA stakes. Should do for me, guv!  So, new streamer (iPad) and new DAC .. Here I come! Watch this space.
