AO On Roon Server PC

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I run Roon Server on one PC and HQ Player on a 2nd.

 

What is the value/advantages of running AO on the Roon Server PC and should I just use the same settings that I am using on the HQ Player PC?

I'm not sure if I understand this question correctly. But the very short answer is better sound quality. 
 

depending on your constellation there are more or less advantages, but as said, not sure if I am understanding correctly...

Phil. I have 2 PCs as part of my setup.  1 PC runs Roon server.  The other runs HQ Player.  I have AO on both.

 

Should I use the sames options for AO on the Roon server PC as I do on the HQ Player PC?

Use as much features of AO as your constellation allows to! 👍🏼

I would.  The point of AO is to optimize the performance of the computer -- whether its a server or endpoint.
