  1. The new Mytek Brooklyn Bridge ii (coming June 2021) will have built in Roon core. So basically, the same as a Nucleus direct to Dac. In fact, one could buy a $1500 Nucleus and go direct into the new Mytek Libery Dac ($1000) and save a grand. Just curious if anyone else is going direct from a Nucleus into a Dac without a separate streamer and how does it sound?
  2. I don't think it does. However, as long as it can function as a roon endpoint over ethernet I'm good. Plus, I use airply for my ceiling, patio speakers...so having airplay in my main system is only a bonus
  3. I was looking at getting a Stream Box Ultra to go along with my 4 year old Pro-Ject S2. However, the Matrix has a built in streamer for only a $150 more. Plus the Dac is newer. Once the Matrix gets Roon Certified, I may give it a try. Has anyone here purchased the Matrix and compared it to the S2?
  4. I saw the same video and quite interested myself. The one thing that does make me hesitant are the tubes which can add more noise into an existing tube system or system with high efficient speakers.
  5. Quick question, what kind of sound differences? I have the Pro-Ject s2 digital. Is the M500 display easier to read from a distance vs the Pro-Ject. I'm thinking of moving the Pro-Ject to a desktop system and getting something with a halfway readable display from my listening chair.
  6. Down again. many other users having same issue
  7. Looks like there is a network issue with Tidal and Qobuz thru Roon
  8. I meant to say above Low cost MQA dacs were not available.
  9. You are right about the S2's performance. However, at the time of it's release, low cost dacs (besides the Dragonfly dongle) were not available. The talk on all the audio forums was about the S2 being an affordable MQA Dac. Many upon many non MQA options in the price range
  10. So what is the consensus on the best (non battery) power upgrade for the s2? When I first got the unit a couple years back, people mentioned the ifi power cable (around $50 I believe). I'm not interested in battery power.
  11. I wonder if John Westlake is involved with this unit.
  12. The popularity of the low priced s2 was much to do with MQA abilities at a low price. Im sure the same here competing with the likes of Mytek, Teac, etc.
  13. Dual mono, balanced outputs plus HDMI MSRP is a bit pricey, however, I’m sure you’ll be able to get cheaper https://www.project-audio.com/en/product/pre-box-rs2-digital/
  14. Anyone purchase one and can offer any opinions?
  15. Is Qobuz down for anyone else? Web site even gets me an error warning. Streaming went down as I was listening this morning.
