    Good Saturday Night- I recently decided to give Roon a try via a 60 trial via my Bryston BDP 3. I put the Roon Core and Remote on a laptop in hopes of using the BDP3 as an end-point. Both the laptop and Bryston are on WiFi. I have not been...

    That is a public list of devices that Roon keeps after certification, in support of (not against) what you said.

    I hate to admit it but years ago I had a similar problem I solved by stuffing socks into the ports. Itís a Ďredneckí solution and Iím not proud of it but it worked for me in that situation.

    Some great recommendations. For an RTA you can download the AudioTools app on your phone for $19.95 This can be used with disc like "Audio Check" on Tidal which provides sweep tones, pink noise and more.

    consider that along the middle line of the room (as you move forward or back relative to your speakers) you will have peaks and nulls. likely the boomy-ness will exist regardless of where you put your speakers (small room acoustics), but you...

    I look for a smooth integrated response for both drivers, with excellent horizontal and vertical off-axis response. There should be excellent spectral decay with minimal ringing for both drivers, and minimal comb filtering.

    Tweeter is first and foremost important to me. Any forwardness, brightness or harshness is an absolute deal breaker. Mids need to sweet and organic. Bass is great but I can give it up a little. Vocals and piano are most important to me.
