Hello Andrew and thank you very much for offering your help and support. I am very seriously considering the dCS network bridge because, at least on paper, it sounds like a phenomenal product.
Let me tell you a little bit about my setup: I have a pair of Devialet export Pro 1000 Mono blocks that have been upgraded to the Core Infinity module and I am using a Synology DS 918+ NAS with 8 GB RAM. It has a 1 TB SSD with roon server and database installed on it and another 2TB SSD with music files on it. The speakers are Vienna Acoustics the Music floor standers and the sound quality is excellent. Right now, the end point for roon is the Devialet. Clearly the endpoint is going to be the dCS network bridge if I install it.
I do not have the option to listen to the dCS network bridge before buying because in my country there is no dealer. I will have import it and if I notice no improvement in sound quality I am pretty much stuck with it. That is $4200 spent needlessly if I notice no improvement. I note this is a hard question for you, would you still recommend the network bridge? Thank you very much.
