Manufacturers Product Page: https://nadelectronics.com/product/c-658-bluos-streaming-dac/

The current setup is NAIM Nait driving two B&W CM9 floorstanders and NAD T762 (soon to be replaced) driving the center and surrounds ( B&W)
Oppo 105D being used as a pre amp, connected to NAIM via balanced o/p for music (CD, SACD, Bluray etc)
Need a streamer to be used with NAIM ( maybe via 105D )
Thinking about getting an Auralic Aries or NAD C658 (with Dirac) as the streamer.
Leaning more towards the C658 as Auralic don't have much of a presence here in Oz? ( for after sales issues)
