    Just so I understand. In order to improve the sound of Roon, you install and configure HQP on another computer. Then, in HQP, you set it to upsample everything, even PCM red book to DSD 256/512 using a ASDM7EC modulator with a poly-sinc-ext2...

    Anyone who hasn’t compared Roon to TAS or Aurender or NAIM, really should. Hopefully some folks who have made this comparison based on sound, will chime in. We have a Nucleus+ and a Taiko Extreme for running Roon. It sounds like HQP really can...

    Those features and meta data come at a cost: sound. Best interface hands down is Roon. But far from the best sounding. Actually, quite a choke point sonically. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    True enough indeed. And, on another topic, I still have yet to be able to hear the difference between a $0.25 Buss line fuse or the $150 a "pop", no pun intended, esoteric line fuse but I know that there are those of you who can.

    Bart, if you have the APOD’s, then the Herbies (for easy sliding) are still your best bet. We use them in the store (we probably have about 80 or 100) as we have them under every speaker for easy placement. We remove them for the demo.
