    Looking to buy a preamp dac, power amp and streamer. Audiolab would be an obvious choice and I'll put off the purchase if the streamer is to be released soon. Does anyone actually know when the M-Net will be available? Picture attached for those who haven't seen it. Which are a good speaker match for Audiolab? Assuming something on the warm side of neutral?

    Musical Fidelity M1CLiC digital pre-amp/streamer and M1PWR amp would be worth a look

    Interesting that the USB input is on the back. Most streamers have it on the front which makes me think they're not intending it to be used primarily with a USB hard drive.

    Possibly, though I wouldn't go by the picture of it on the link I supplied. It would be nice if someone like Dav1dF could supply us with some 'proper' pics and may be a full spec.

    Interesting viewpoint but I think the opposite ! I have been looking for a network player with a rear USB port to semi-permanently attach a SSD drive to it. I would have bought a Naim ND5 XS if it had a rear USB port. I think the front port is useful for occasional listening from a USB stick or drive. But I would not like having a drive permanently attached to the front port, in particular if this is located near switches or other controls. For that a rear port is better.

    All things come to those who wait - including those waiting for replies on this thread, it seems!
