    Article: Roon Vs. JRiver | Clash of the Titans

    Perhaps worth noting that, in addition to Chromecast, Roon also supports Airplay, which is integrated into many devices--e.g., Devialet Phantoms. That said, the ease of adding another endpoint with a Chromecast Audio or Raspberry Pi is just killer. For less than $100, any DAC becomes a superb streamer.

    Best Clock Radios ??

    Sangean has been making various versions of this classic design for years. It's sounds great for the size and has digital tuning, a line in, digital radio support (in the US, at least), and a dimmable display. I've not found a better option. This one looks similar, but also has Bluetooth and some kind of USB input. Having not tried this model, I can't say much more about it.
  4. Dear Mr. Atkinson, I really appreciate your participation in this thread and others on CA. As others have said, your measurements and analysis are simply invaluable. Whether here or in Stereophile, I'd be very interested in your thoughts, or those of another person with appropriate technical expertise, on @Archimago's findings and analysis here. Subjectively, MQA may be the bee's knees, but many of us doubt that a product can excel in listening if it fails at the technical aspects of reproduction--which is why I always read your Measurements sidebars before equipment reviews. Maybe MQA is different, but even so it would still be good to have additional people considering the accurate reproduction (versus, say, FLAC) question. So, how about it? Best, AMG

    Simple (I hope) cable question

    I'm late the party, but you might try wireless streaming to a Raspberry Pi running Roon Bridge right at your DAC. Inexpensive (~$70), easy to set up, bitperfect streaming through Roon, and no wires strung across your room.
