I am very much enjoying my Roon adventure. I have been doing various bits and pieces to all parts of my system with lots more in my head. I am part way through installing Ethernet throughout my house to enable me to move away from the slightly unreliable home-plugs. I am thinking about a new system in my kitchen and I have just enabled a spare Chromecast for a guest bedroom. My current set-up consists of;
Lounge - Amp: Musical Fidelity M3i Speakers: Monitor Audio Bronze floorstanders. Roon end point:Raspberry Pi3 with IQaudio DAC HAT.
Office - PC: Windows 10. Speakers: Adam F5s. DAC:Arcam irDACII.
Kitchen - Sonos Play:1
Guest room - Chrome-cast into Roberts radio
I am looking at upgrading the DAC in the lounge, and I am interested in the Allo USbridge and I have been lurking around the main thread for a while now, so, that just leaves a DAC.
I am currently favouring either the Mytek Liberty DAC or the Chord Qutest. The Mytek comes with MQA but the Chord always comes back into my mind somehow. I can get the Liberty online with a linear power supply for less that the Qutest, which is also in my mind. My budget for the DAC is around a £1000 give or take.
Anyway, I am going set up some demo’s, however, should I consider anything else? Or does anyone have any comments on the USbridge/DAC combo. I have seen a few positive comments in the Allo thread already.
Thanks for any help.
