Conclusions

If you are like me and jumped straight to the conclusion, then you must want to know the obvious: is this device worth $1595? Yes I believe it is and here is why. One can always break down a device into its individual components and add up the cost of said components, but much more goes into the design of a unit like the Airstream. A lot of time was spent pairing the right power supply to the guts of the Apple Airport Express along with a custom chip that re-clocks the data to eliminate jitter. The end product is a sweet sound that is a joy to listen to. If you are looking for a device to transport your digital music files to your high-end system, definitely check out the Micromega Airstream. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
