    RS have the Onkyo NS6130 (Black) at £199 VIP price down from £349 (in an e-mail):

    Onkyo NS-6130 black


    But is it worth it, can't find many reviews which is worrying.

    A huge part of effective streaming is software based. So is the app any good & does it properly support gapless playback? Both of which really ought to be a given in 2018 but sadly, aren't. So best advice I could offer would be buy it, try it & if it's pants, return it.

    Unless you are particularly after a hifi unit look, then I tend to think budget hifi streamers are a bit of a waste of money (unless the remote control is very useful and they also have a decent controller app) - may be as well get a chromecast or some other streaming device.

    For more expensive hifi streamers, then hopefully you are paying for a good DAC as well so they make more sense.

    How have you found it? Does it support gapless when streaming from a NAS?
