  1. Re: Building Your Own Audio Streamer - Roon, Spotify, DLNA, HQPlayer

    Thank you! That set up you mention should work very nicely!

    I am using roPieeeXL myself. I am now streaming Spotify directly to my main system. I control the music using the Spotify app from my...
  2. Re: Building Your Own Audio Streamer - Roon, Spotify, DLNA, HQPlayer

    You are welcome!

    1. Correct, the Raspberry Pi is just a Roon-EndPoint. You still need to run the ROON CORE on another computer. The Roon Core is the one doing the...

    Re: MBL 101 E MK II install advice

    Totally agree. No way!!
  4. Re: Building Your Own Audio Streamer - Roon, Spotify, DLNA, HQPlayer

    An Update:
    1. If you are ok with only USB output, the price drops below $100. You only need the Raspberry Pi, a case, a power-supply, and SD card (no need for a HAT).

    MBL 101 E MK II install advice

    Yes correct. Strap the subwoofer cabinet to the hand truck. The straps need to be tight. To protect the finish of the speaker, you can use a blanket or similar around the subwoofer cabinet.

    Re: Should I upgrade or not.

    I personally would not bother with cables and power conditioners in your case and spend the money where it really can make the biggest difference: the speakers. There are several online companies...

  8. Building Your Own Audio Streamer - Roon, Spotify, DLNA, HQPlayer

    I use Roon and Qobuz. But I recently resubscribed to Spotify because I much prefer it to find new music and to share music with others. Unfortunately, Roon and Spotify do not work well together.

    Re: Speaker suggestions for large room

    I use DSP on 2-channel. The capabilities of today's DSP are quite a lot better than what was possible just a few years ago. If done correctly, DSP can do wonders to the sound without wasting money on...

    Re: Qobuz And Tidal vs Spotify

    After using Qobuz and Tidal, i ended up with Qobuz only because it is cheaper and does not require me to have a MQA-capable DAC.

    Spotify is the way to go if one wants to share music with others....

    Re: Which TurnTable - 50K range?

    I have to assume that at the $50k price range they must all sound great. So I would be looking for the nicest looking turntable; any ďnormalĒ looking turntable will not do.

    I donít think that the author is proposing to bring back the CD.

    As I see it, CDs are dead. I interpret the article as explaining the reasons why the 16/44 digital format of the CD is technically...

    Excellent article. The article lists and explains the reasons why CDs are technically superior to LPs. LPs and CDs sound different. And some folks may still prefer listening to LPs regardless of its...
