Raspberrry Pi HiFi Berry vs. uRendu...

because we haven't discussed this issue NEARLY enough...

It seems the uRendu has Gigabit Ethernet input while the Raspberry Ri is 10/100?

Guessing the Raspberry Pi HiFi Berry edition may not support 512 DSD either but I really don't care.

I think a far better comparison regards the value of the Raspberry Pi HiFi Berry combo would be to compare it to a SBT, which it clearly replaces and isn't that what everyone who loves the SBT has been hoping for?

As far as sound quality, I see no real way of an 'apples vs. apples' comparison as the uRendu is USB and the HiFi Berry output is S/PDIF - TOSLINK. At least from my perspective, I'd be comparing two different inputs to my DAC, one of which would be going through the USB > I2S circuitry the other not?

But again, it's something we certainly have NOT discussed in NEARLY enough detail. ;-)
