Ok, then, to be clear, QUIT Roon bridge…
Run the zipped NAA file. (networkaudiod file)
Then… the NAA app acts like a Roon endpoint like Roon Bridge did?
(Select NetworkAudioAdapter from the HQPlayer Backend dropdown)
So, can I ask, because I truly want to know, and I love to learn about the best way to do these things: Does this improve the sound quality over using Roon Bridge?
If so, why?
EDIT: I did it, and it seems to work just fine. (Did it to both of my mini’s that are running roon bridge.)
It sounds great, sure, but I can’t really tell if it’s better. I’m really not going back and forth testing and whatnot. But I might do that at some point. Or not. I tend to hate the fact that I never have revelatory audio experiences like some of you, where a cable changes your life, or whatever.
Just curious tho, why this might/should sound/work better than using Roon Bridge.
