I do have a question and I apologize upfront if this might have been explained in this forum already, I just couldn’t find it.
AFAIK Roon is sending audio stream to connected endpoints. We all know that this is a clocked stream where jitter comes in place an depends on the source how good this is been executed.
If I’m not wrong it is also audio stream send to Meridian or AirPlay endpoints at the moment over the network.
Here comes my question:
Wouldn’t it be better sound wise for upcoming “Roon cerified hardware” letting Roon provide the endpoint getting the file as an unclocked file transport and let the endpoint execute the clocked stream as those usually are optimized for low jitter, usually better than computers running the Roon core?
I’m not a deep tec person, so maybe somebody can enlighten me.
