I dont think so, you must have a PRO to be able to get the streamerboard. If you buy a PRO or upgrade an Expert to PRO status you get the streamerboard for "free".

Obviously you liked the 440Pro or you would not have booked the upgrade. Shy    Any observations on the sound?

I'm really not good in the description of my totally subjective sound impressions. Even only a couple hours powered on, the d440pro was sounding (we made AB test with a pair of Magico s5 mk2) mor homogenous without loosing the details of a huge soundstage. I liked it better especially with female voices or small choirs giving them a more intimate sound. Overall (both on ver.10). Hade the feeling I could listen to complex contemporary classically music much longer without getting stressed.

Wow, how did you find the S5 mk2? Some saying quite a big improvement over the S5... already a very fine speaker.

I bet they would sing with an O d'A or 1000 Pro.  Wink

Another forum member got amazing results with the S5 going from the 400 to 800.
