A friend is considering buying a demo Uniti Lite b at a deep discount. It does come with a warranty however he’s been told that Naim may no longer have access to legacy streaming boards. Should the streaming board fail in any legacy streamer it is unlikely to be able to be repaired. @Richard.Dane (or others in the know) you are likely the best informed person on such matters wondering if you can you confirm this to be true or not?
If indeed this is the case I am curious how common streaming board failures occur with legacy streamers. Searching the forum there doesn’t seem to be much chatter on it so thinking it’s not common. I’m also wondering if the streaming board fails will that mean the dac also fails (are they on the same board)?
These are made by streamunlimited and used by a multitude of hifi companies such as dcs. I imagine the failure rate is pretty low. Same goes for pc motherboards - which this is basically not so different - and I’m using computers that are a few years old; a muso qb gen 1, unitiqute both the latter are the original steaming board and work perfectly.
