I've been looking for a high value Roon endpoint for my Dynaudio Focus XD 200 active speakers. Decided to give the Allo a try and ordered one last Thursday 3/1. It shipped from Bangalore IN and arrived at my doorstep today. From opening the box to listening to music took me about 15 minutes. Easy setup with the Allo/Dietpi GUI interface. All you need is a modicum of networking knowledge and a web browser, voila. The Dynaudio's are configured for direct two cable playback master/slave. The Digione is connected to the Dynaudio with a Blue Jeans Coax SPDIF RCA/BNC cable. Playing a bit perfect FLAC 192/24 file sounds pretty darn fine. I'm impressed, particularly for such a high value component, it won't win any beauty contests but sounds very good. I was previously feeding the Dynaudio's wirelessly using the Dynaudio connect USB port fed by the SOTM SMS200. Direct connect wasn't possible with the SOTM because of the USB only output. I'm very, very pleased so far. Prior to the Dynaudio's my configuration was SOTM SMS200 > Ayre QB9 DSD DAC > Ayre AX7E amp > Focal 1007BE. I'm liking the current config significantly better, less audiophile hardware in my media room and a highly flexible great sounding system. Current config is Allo Digione > Dynaudio Focus XD 200. Two boxes, love it.
