New to Roon but have been considering a server for the multitude of ripped files currently siting on a couple of drives in my PC and those CD’s yet to be ripped.
I was considering a Nucleus and connecting to my DAC/streamer - a Technics SL-G700 via USB. The reason I ask the question as to whether it would work is that the USB connectors on the Technics are both USB A and I have used them for thumb drives. But I’ve always seen USB A to USB B connections for this and wasn’t sure if USB A to USB A would work which would be the connection from the Nucleus to the Technics. Or maybe that doesn’t make any difference?
I guess the alternative is to connect through the LAN? Or something like the Matrix Audio X-SPDIF 2 USB Interface to go SPDIF which, for cost reasons, I’d like to avoid?
Any advice or insight on this?
