Just starting using Roon recently. I’ve used Volumio for a while and it’s great, but does have a few flaws that made me want to experiment something else. Roon does solve the problems I had with Volumio and the all the other things Roon has, turned my experienced quite better.
So right now, since I’m testing, I’m using my daily computer has my core and since I have a Volumio streamer I use it has a bridge which allows very easy control to both my Project Dac and Soncoz Dac.
This is a temporary situation, because although I can have my files play at their original quality, there’s something weird that sometimes the music has a small jump and hiccups - either because of Roon bridge or my computer?!
I’m thinking of getting a NUC and then either keep using my Volumio streamer or connect the NUC directly to my dacs (using a usb purifier). So I have two questions here:
- Can I connect a NUC directly to a DAC?
- Would I get similar sound quality just keeping using a bridge like I’m doing now?
Thanks in advance for the help!
