You can stream everything in very good audio quality for so much less that I do not get where these units are so expensive. Must be for a much larger profit margin and a slightly better build. Not really worth that. My pick is the Cocktail Audio N25 which in The US is largely ignored.

As an Android-based device, isn't this limited by Android's audio limitations, such as all 44.1 kHz material being resampled to 48 kHz?

As someone who doesn't at all get the use case for one of these boxes, I'll (mostly) avoid commenting on the perceived value of $5k for something like this. Eesh.
