    Sure! We are going to unbox (and do a video) today. We were so slammed with demos yesterday, we didn’t have time.

    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

    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.
