I dig that preamp, but you forgot to mention the RPi 4B in a heat sink case as source for the D90.
Whoops. Yeah. One of those, too (although I need to reimage it to the latest Moode build).

And the Topping is no slouch - just got it today and definitely an improvement over the Grace SDAC that I was previously using.

I was going to ask what you thought of the D90. Seems to be the consensus opinion, and one I share with regard to the D30 Pro.

Well, I got it (used) for less than 50% of the retail price, and it is the non-MQA version, so I'm calling it a win.
That is a win any way you slice it, those aren't as plentiful on the used market as they once were.

BTW - the Backup/Restore function worked perfectly for me in updating to the Moode 8 series.

In the past I had always just manually re-entered the Settings with major version upgrades, as I'm pretty darn familiar with them at this point. I can blow through it in a couple of minutes, however this time I asked myself why I wouldn't just give the backup/restore a go and see how it turned out? Seconds after booting the new image and hitting Restore, I was fully in business.

That was with the UPnP Renderer, YMMV with Squeezelite, but I doubt it.
