My current system in use. It was designed for the living room, so no speakers the size of my old system (80kg per piece), no racks for vinyl or CDs, some cabling mess by now and some acoustic treatments planned.
So, there is a streamer / server that handles the connection to the streaming services (Qobuz is ours) and stores and plays my bought files. Roon software is integrated to this streamer / server and gives me flawless combination of local files with the streaming catalogues.
During 2020, I pretty much upgraded all devices and cables. More budget at hand allowed to jump from the lowest end to the highest of the same manufacturers lines. No auditioning at stores due to Corona, made me decide by my trusted devices, reading lots of reviews, and get confirmation from my dealers, to stay with the manufacturers. Except for the DAC. But There I stayed with the new DAC and upgraded it to the medium and then top model. All these upgrades were more successful, than I inspected it to be, and none needed burn-in to be better. They still all got better while burning in.
I am amazed, what a simple CD contains, once it's downloaded or ripped, and then run through my server and my DAC. Most of this comes from cleaning power, EMI, and jitter, and re-clocking. The sound is wonderful and there is no fatigue, unless the recording is really bad.
Very natural and neutral, super high resolution and stage in all directions, impressive presence and engagement. Very happy ... but what can I change from now on ... :)
