Apologies if my post came across as factious. That was never my intention.
The point I was trying to make, and with more words it might be better made, is that inbuilt-obsolescence is the nature of modern technology. And that includes music players, DAC’s and streamers.
It’s just something you have to ‘swallow’. For example my first DAC, a Cambridge Audio DACMagic had a maximum sampling-rate input of 96Khz. My next DAC supported 192Khz. My current Linn KDS/3 only supports up to 24/192 and DSD128. The new Linn KDSM/3 supports up to 24/384 and DSD256. And so on. You get my drift?
However, there are exceptions. And that’s why I mentioned Lumin. Right from the offset, their original A1 from 2012 could process 32/384 and DSD64. And they added MQA support through various firmware updates over the following years. And that’s why I recommend Lumin. Their product support and update regime is second to-none. It’s about as close as you can get to future-proofing these days.
