Hi all: I’m currently using a hard-wired, dedicated older Macbook as my Roon Bridge, feeding a DragonFly. Works great, but I am interested in repurposing the Mac (giving it to my daughter), and am looking for a Roon-Ready endpoint to replace it. Something relatively simple…I don’t have the technical proficiency of many of the Roon community members. I’m attracted to the DirectStream JR but it’s more than I wanted to spend. Any thoughts/tips on a plug-and-play alternative?
PS FYI my Core is a Mac Mini with a SSD boot drive and separate SSD drive for the library. My room configuration does not permit a wire from the core to my receiver. I’m using Apple TV’s as other endpoints throughout the house, but for my main system I want lossless quality.
