So new i havent started yet!
Hello to everyone. Before i jump in head first a few questions and hopefully some answers.
In brief my current set up is as follows:-
Jriver v23 using sox resampler (best sound ive had from jriver)
Ming da campana valve amp
Chord Qute EX (usb connected)
Chord running kernel streaming via jriver
Tannoy precision 6.4 speaker
Winows PC i3 4025 1tb hdd internal
X64 windows 10
1 tb lacie external hdd (approx 2,500 albums)
Almost all files are flac
Samsung galaxy tab 4 (currently using j remote
LG 50" tv as used as monitor.
Thinking bout Tidal but not moved on that yet!
Ive been a jriver user since v16, but roon has sparked my curiosity.
So first of all - is the pc up to coping with roon?
Can i use it remotely using my tablet as a controller? (I use jremote which i do like a lot)
Can/does it support the dac?
Does it or can you use the sox resampler? (Again i like this a lot)
Im puttin my hands up here to being a complete ludite (lol)
Ive just started messin about with dsd files and have been very interested as to sound comparision against flac
I did read that roon can upsample my flac files and output in dsd, hopefully i picked that up correctly.
Im trying to get all my questions in before i even start a trial !
In my listening room im sitting about 14-15ft away from my lg tv, any issues there regarding layout reading content etc, im not getting any younger and neither is my eyesight (hence the tablet for remote use)
No plans to run this house wide yet!
Any thoughts suggestions comments etc etc would be greatly appreciated
Apologies for being very long winded
