@petrik I'm actually having some sort of e-mail conversation with them at the moment, where they both answer my questions and have a few of their own on how things work out for me. I also got a call the other day from Océane, so I'm very satisfied with all of that.

If only the amp would work as expected all things would be great...

Here is a brief comment on my findings:

Before the CI board:
- I couldn't use Wifi at all
- I got crackles with RoonAIR every now and then
- Left/right channels were dropping randomly due to some internal error
- AIR 3.0.4 was unusable because it kept crashing on Windows many times a day

After the CI board:
- Wifi works really well, up to 96 kHz
- RoonAIR works well, up to 96 kHz (Wifi)
- No crackles or any other similar issues with RoonAIR (Wifi)
- I haven't tried Ethernet, so cannot comment on that
- There are some bugs in the beta FW as everyone already knows.

Things that haven't changed:
- 192 kHz streaming isn't bit-perfect over AIR-Wifi. AIR switches automatically to "Fixed output mode" on Wifi when streaming 192 kHz. I heard that this is a built-in feature in AIR and that it has always worked like this.
- No improvement on AIR 3.0.4, it still crashes on Windows 10.

So overall, I'm quite happy with the upgrade although there are some bugs to be fixed.

Have had a couple of hours to play my CI upgraded 250 Pro this afternoon Just My Favourites playlist from Tidal. Precision, power and clarity are exceptional, although whether there is any significant enhancement on pre-upgrade output is a moot point and probably beyond my subjective listening capabilities. Nevertheless my playlist has all varieties of recordings of quite different qualities but the clarity is quite astonishing even in the poorest. "it's getting better all the time..."
