    Yup! 👌👊👍 Could not agree more on your points. Well said. I'll just add that adding my P1 to my system not only resulted in having a superb-sounding and world-class streamer, DAC and preamplifier, but it allowed me to significantly...

    I too enjoy ROON radio for discovering new music and for easy background listening to a certain genre. It wasn't that good to begin with, often straying way out of bounds, but has gotten much better. Pandora still does the best job of curating in...

    I was also wondering if that was a rendering, although the rest of the room was exactly like in one of the pictures of S3, or it could be a real product that wasnít supposed to be posted yet and thatís why it was taken down so quickly.

    Roon radio is very cool and on point for the most part. I wish I had something similar. Tidal used to do something similar but it quit working with the Conductor ap for some reason. I need to try on my phone the issue could be Tidal.
