  1. Aesthetically a step backward IMHO, yuck. Surprising given how far ahead Roon was to competitors in UI design when it launched.
  2. I use Roon to feed DSD 512 to a T+A DAC8 DSD. It sounds fantastic, every bit as good as HQP and its hassle free. Everyone’s taste is different but to flat out say there is an issue or it sounds worse is likely hyperbolic hogwash from the peanut gallery.
  3. I don’t want to sound too disparaging but confirming your $60k speakers still sound good while record people are about to be searching for their next meal just makes me want to exit this hobby.
  4. Nice case! My gaming PC back in the day was in a modded Silverstone TJ-07. Brings back memories.
  5. Nice review! The comparisons are so useful.
  6. I would have no problem using HQP's digital volume control......if it fooled me with a big old volume knob and a readout on the DAC! That's the part I need more than a resistor ladder, tactility!
  7. I think there may be a few (many) statements being "lost in translation" here. 🙂
  8. Agreed. It's literally changing one setting in Roon and you've got up to DSD512 that works every time without fail, robust DSP, and a choice of 4 very good sounding filters.
  9. What I wouldn't give for this to trickle down into a DAC8 DSD-like package with only the DSD converter. Ethernet DSD 1024 in and beautiful analog out at a real world price..... Perhaps a little too niche 🙂
  10. Wow you guys are some tough acts to follow. Beautiful systems here! 😍 Focal Sopra 2 Perla Audio Maestro pre Perla Audio Righello monoblocks T+A DAC 8 DSD Custom Win 10 streamer and server
  11. How did you control for sighted bias against the Etherregen? EDIT: actually who gives a crap, I'm not buying one of these either. I can't think of anything less fun in the audiophile hobby than networking gear.
