My limited knowledge prevents me from asking properly.
I purchased the Node2I last year. It is in the basement connected to my primary tube system.
Then I subscribed to Roon because I wanted to play streamed audio to different rooms. And I like the interface.The core is on a PC in my office.
I then purchased an Allo Digi1 Signature for my bedroom thinking the Stream would go from the internet through the Node2I to the Digi1. The Allo Digi1 is connected to a Schitt Bifrost Dac via the SPDIF RCA digital out. I wanted to do everything over wired Ethernet. It worked fine.
I just do not understand which device is actually talking to Tidal serving up the music to the Roon Endpoint, which I thought was the Allo.
Thank You for you replies and again, excuse my limited knowledge.
