Hello, I am fairly new here... well, I have mostly been "listening" only (thank you for all your knowledge). I am currently searching for a good solution to quickly play audio that sounds great. That's really what my main goal is. I am tired of always having to turn on the computer, login, open programs... you get the picture. A few month ago I bought a used DAT machine to listen to my old DAT tapes. It was a lot of fun and I eventually made some "mix tapes". This really drove me into this whole dilemma... I would love something that is just like the DAT machine, which is ready in 3 seconds, and plays music in 4. But I want it without the winding of tape... I have lots of music on a file server, mostly CD-quality FLAC, and also some high-res stuff. It would probably make more sense to look for a good network player than to choose an SD card player (e.g. Denon DN-500R) or hard disk player (e.g. Korg MR-2000S). I don't really have to have the recording capability, it would be a nice plus though (e.g. Tascam DA-3000). Support for DSD would be great, but "only" 24/192khz PCM would be fine too. So I discovered the Technics ST C700, which has most of everything I want. But I wanted to ask here to see if anybody has any experience with it, or any similar suggestions. Here a list of "must have": - Fast boot-up - Front panel display that displays good amount of info - Front panel buttons (e.g. operable without remote or smart-phone) - Fast user interface (I have seen Pioneer's, which seems very sluggish) - DLNA or SMB capable (e.g. access music on file server) - Good sounding DAC - At least 24bit/192khz PCM support, preferable also DSD An nice extra feature would be recording capability, but that's not really a "must have". What I particularly like about the Technics is, that I could also use it as a USB-DAC for my PC. Not many network players seem have this option. Or should I just become aguinea pig for all of us here and buy the Technics now? Thanks in advance.
