My experience is pretty much novice compared to most of you guys. I was reading up in the PI2AIS Hat and was wondering if it would be worth integrating into my existing Pi4 setup.
Currently running Roon Core via a dedicated NAS
Which pushes storage FLAC files or Tidal via RAAT to Pi4 connected to a Khadas Tone Board as Roon endpoint.
Tone Board outputs analog to Cambridge CNR120 in Amp mode only feeding Anthology DYI) speakers
Would there be any benefit in purchasing a PI2AES Hat for the Pi4 then feeding the Tone Board via S/PDIF, if I can get the tone board to accept and operate with that connection, from a sound perspective?
Additionally, would this hardware configuration still work as a Roon endpoint?
Read up on several forums on the PI2AES but still am cloudy on Roon integration and benefit.
Thanks for your input.
