I’m looking for something to get more than the 16/44 that AirPlay offers to my main receiver.
I’ve been reading up on the Node 2i and will be cabling it (I cable everything I can) but when reading through the thread here about problems with 2i kit someone mentioned you could just stick a DAC on your Roon server and connect that (and I hadn’t even thought about it).
In Sweden the Node 2i is just shy of 6000SEK (about 550€/$600)and now i’m thinking maybe I should just pour that money into “just” a DAC and get some sort of payoff for it.
But then I read that you could get some sort of mysterious interference from your Roon server if you do that. My Roon server is a not-supported-but-very-much-working NUC5i7RYH with SSD and 16GBs of RAM running ROCK.
