I took a quick look through the specs and didn't see anything about support for FLAC. That would be a deal breaker for me.

The 3 times higher flow of the Bluetooth info would probably help with resolution if you used it that way. I often stream from my tablet to my soundbar/sub for background music and it's nowhere near the quality of my dedicated playback at my desk.

Guess I skimmed right past it. Looks like it covers just about anything I might put on it. No real world experience with it. Been thinking about getting a player for when I'm on the road or to leave in the living room for streaming to the soundbar for casual listening.

Tonearm resonance emulation ?!!!!
WTF?!!!

Tonearm resonance is NOT a desired charcteristic of sound reproduction, honest.
