Just wanted to say that I really like this little tool. I joined the kickstarter campaign so I have used it for some time now. And I have grown to love Bluetooth… Easy to use, stable and good enough sound quality.
Since I don´t have a tv I use my macbbook and I can stream the sound to the Sprout and sound and picture is in sync. You can´t say that about airplay…
I have more flea power tube amps and vinyl record players than I should and I often use Sprout as a jack of all trades preamp. And it shines! And it´s all there, RIIA, DAC and the wonderful Bluetooth connection.
Sound quality from streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify is not really that good when compared to my own ripped collection (aif files) and it is easy for everyone to hear. I am a bit sceptic to the sound of many dacs. In my main system I have a non oversampling dac, cheap but easy on the ear. I haven´t put it against the Sprout, and I don´t intend to either, but I want to stress that the DAC in the Sprout does sound good to my ears. And I consider myself as a bit picky about the sound of digital.
If the cut in price reach Sweden I may get a second. The Bluetooth connection alone makes it worth it to have one in the every system.
I want to say Thanks to PS Audio and this forum and it´s members! This is a place where I actually can learn things or at least get sound opinions.
