I plan to start a Roon trial using my ASUS laptop as Core, plugged into my Router or one of my Cisco switches.
I would probably buy a Sonore SGC upnp Bridge box to run as an endpoint permanently if the trial is a success.
But what would the endpoint be in a trial?
Can it be my laptop?
I have no NAS, no digital library (except a couple of test files bought on Qobuz) - all I want to do is see whether I get better SQ streaming Tidal and Qobuz via Roon.
But without a Roon bridge such as the Sonore one I mention above, will I even get Roon RAAT sent to my Naim 272 streamer/DAC/preamp?
And will I be able to play with Roon DSP functions such as room correction, convolution, etc?
