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

    Anyone found a HAT or Pi using fiber (SFP)? I believe Cubox (Clearfog) has a all in one solution with a SFP built in which could be used in a similar application for an endpoint.

    Re: Taiko Music Server

    My comment was under my impression that TAS would be available to other builds (my bad) and that the current climate is that roon's sound quality and direction is undesirable => thus I was...

    Re: Taiko Music Server

    Oh good to know, I was under the impression there was a "version" for custom / other builds. Guess not. Even if it were available outside of the Taiko products, I would guess it would be $$ for...

    Re: Taiko Music Server

    I was just following up on TAS info and looks like it’s getting closer. Not knowing much about it, looks like there will be a version for extreme / existing customers (native) and one for everyone...

    Re: Speaker suggestions for large room

    Since this has derailed from the OP’s content into arguing about subs, I will say it’s pretty outlandish to say so matter of fact subs do not belong in 2chnl. Makes absolutely no sense IMHO but...

    Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    I could and do live without it......at least for now.

    A lot of interesting views and clearly streaming is the preference for many. However, there has not been one mention of how the streaming...
  8. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    Thanks @Mr Peabody + @Mike, redundant wasn't the best description. Mikes summary explains it perfectly! Apologies to the OP for getting OT
  9. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    Yes possibly. That or the n100 it would appear. However, their product line up consists of a lot of models and seems a bit confusing / redundant. At least at first glance.

    On top of that,...
  10. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    That's what I'm curious about - the model equiv (non DAC) to a multiple PC config - think JCAT control and audio PC or a multiple ROON core and HQP audio PC with a streamer e.g. SOTM or Sonore...
  11. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    So if one were to start thinking about a “closed” system (as opposed to multiple PC / HQP type), streaming not important and would use a larger library with a fair amount of DSD, what Aurender would...

    Re: Streaming makeover. Pimp my streamer?

    Understood, but adding another device to the network "should" be easy. I think my main point was having the Core on its own (simple) device away from the audio PC can have its benefits and I think...

    Re: Streaming makeover. Pimp my streamer?

    Would it be "better, optimized" (don't like to use those words but..) to have Core on a straightforward NUC while keeping you custom PC config with HQP, music files, direct to DAC, thus keeping core...

    Re: Another Roon Heavy Handed Policy

    To be clear, when indiv refer to local storage does this mean you are connected direct to DAC (no end point, streamer)

    Re: Another Roon Heavy Handed Policy

    I have no horse in this race (I use and love ROON), but why would it be a bad thing for a company to "finally" enforce this type of quality measure? Seems pretty similar to Apple ecosystem. For a...

    I'd say way better than "decent" gear. Enjoy DC! Setup + room are really key.

    Re: Formula 1

    I’ve been a huge F1 fan for a long time, actually most motor sports, but F1 now is so f’ng boring nowadays. Watch the first opening lap, turn it off, watch the last couple laps it’s the same.

    Re: Roon problems

    A lot of generalizations here. There are two methods for the most part - DAC direct or the use of an endpoint. Which is better will most certainly be a personal preference as well as how one...
