Reading the following lines you might get the impression i am doing marketing for SMSL ( actually i am not.

I am just a little bit sad that the SMSL-98E (Price here in germany 150,00EUR) (ärker-2x120WTDA7498E/dp/B00E62G31S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401464438&sr=8-1&keywords=smsl+sa-98e) easily outperforms my LUA4545L (regular Price 3000,00EUR)

So i recommend to buy it to play volumios output.

I just got it from ebay for 98EUR, connected it to one of my volumio-pi’s and am left speachless…
