I have a Synology NAS and an Auralic Altair, using Lightning DS / server.
I am about to introduce a Core i7 NUC into the chain, on which I will deploy ROCK.
The way I see it, I have 2 ways to connect to the Altair:
- use the Altair as a DAC and connect the NUC via USB
- use the Altair as a Roon endpoint and use a usb-to-ethernet converter
Any opinions as to which option will sound better using Roon?
