My HoloAudio Red arrived four days ago. I stress that it was purchased for personal use as I do sell entry, mid and high-level streamers, therefore I will not make an official comparison to certain brands.
However, I will make these comments:
First impression is that it has a very low noise floor, which leads to a clean sound. I bought it because I wanted a streamer with an I2S output (so I can put away my DDC’s) and is HQP NAA capable. All of the outputs sound good so it should satisfy most users.
The set up menu is found by entering it’s IP address. There are DIP switches on the bottom of the unit. The official manual is still being edited but I did receive a preliminary copy from Kitsune which goes into better detail.
