@Kyle_Vuong@agillis Hi Kyle, I have a Devialet Expert 200 and was (and still am) contemplating a Sonic Transporter to replace my PC (Win10) for 24/7 access to Roon. Yes, you may connect the ST and the Devialet to the same router. I actually contacted Andrew Gillis, CEO/owner of Small Green Computer that produces the ST, and he validated the set-up. I am copying Andrew on this thread in case he wishes to comment.
If using Roon, you can use Roon AIR (no need for Devialet AIR) to stream directly to your Expert. Of course, you could use a MicroRendu to stream to the Expert’s USB input as well, but it’s not needed.
I just received it last night. Quickly set it up and connect to Ethernet and it works with the SonicTransporter like a charm! The sound is amazing! Didn’t have much time to do some A/B testing but will do over the weekend.
At the moment I cannot stream Spotify/Tidal and Airplay (by Airplay I mean anything from my phone, youtube, not only music as I know the Devialet can stream music from phones via wifi), so I’m thinking of adding an Auralic Aries or a dacless network streamer in between. It will be connected to the Devialet via AES cable.
@Kyle_Vuong Great news, Kyle! I’m confused, however, as to why you can’t access Tidal. Since you have Roon, which has Tidal as an option, you should be able to stream this via your current setup. Of course, you can’t access Spotify via Roon so that’s understandable.
