New to Roon. Downloaded the trial earlier today and played with it. Been researching my questions via the knowledge base and this forum. Really like what I see of Roon, and hoping I can make it work for me instead of Sonos, But one thing I’m hung up on, so hoping someone can help me here.
I really need the ability to group all rooms together using the same source. From what I understand, to do this, they all have to be of the same type and RAAT seems to be what I need everything to be. But I have an AVR that will have wired speakers and Roon will need to access the speakers on the AVR. But it seems difficult to get a new receiver that uses RAAT that will also satisfy my needs beyond Roon.
What’s the best way to accomplish what I need? If I get a DAC, will that do it (would that be RAAT) even though it feeds the AVR which is the real endpoint? Would like to not make that investment if I can and get a good AVR to do the job. Are there any AVRs that would be RAAT I should be looking at? Want one that will support 4K video when I get into that eventually.
Thanks in advance for any help here…
