    You have the same ACS10 so your streaming should be pretty good. Are you using the Luxman as the DAC for the ACS10? You will be surprised at how easy it is playing LP's with low vision. My issue is seeing the jacket to pick out what to play. ...

    Thanks for the great post about computing with the T + A...do you think the Dell you listed would do a good job of up converting to DSD512 with HQP while running Roon simultaneously? I would rather spend more and get something that will handle more if needed..,thanks again!
