Yes, understand I need a streaming transport or computer to feed the DAC.
You are right that repairing the Uniti is probably the sensible approach in that I get a working unit that meets my needs for a few more years. As it is it is worthless. The cost to repair it is almost exactly what I might expect if I tried to sell it on fully working.
Given I have to part with cash either way, I wondered if I could get an upgrade in sound (with less features) for not a lot more than a repair.
I’ve never compared them side by side, but I suspect you will find the V1 to be an upgrade from the Uniti when used into a 200. Remember that it has the same type of screen as the Uniti so that probably won’t last forever either.
