I got disappointed the DMS-500 with few problems. It seems a lot to convenience but Sound Quality is just as much as the NODE2 of BLUESOUND compared to the performance per price, even I bought this unit at Black Friday with almost half price. It was annoying they did make the first unit was defective.
They updated firmwares updates several times, I haven't touched it to my music system. Its retail price $4999 , I guess I determine the value around $1999, however. Advantage is ALL IN ONE including DSD, ROON ready and many configuration chances but that's all.
I'm let down in Cary ; quality of sound if you think over the price.
