RE: How to compare streamer specs?

IMHO, properly functioning network streamers are for the most part on equal ground mainly differentiated by their software and user interface. I'm not talking about music servers or streamers with built-in DACs, but purely basic network streamers. You can DIY a superb streamer for $100 or you can spend thousands for one that is audiophile approved with LOTS of great marketing behind it. What specs are you looking for?

If I were looking to purchase a network streamer, I would look at the supported software as a primary criteria. Since I DIY my own, mine all support Roon with the Roon Bridge software. My other commercially purchased streamer also supports Roon. Why? Because it is MY favorite software and user interface.
