I’ve recently joined Roon and been enjoying it a lot last couple of months.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience and wisdom. It makes way easier for a rookie like myself to navigate through the world of DAC and DAPs
I assume, just like in a type of collecting - and I would say that being an audiophile is a form of collecting - rookies make mistakes. I’ve previously been collecting vintage watches and among watch collectors, there is a joke, that your first 5 watches will be considered as a poor choice and you eventually will sell it. For what it’s forth.
So I’ve recently sold my Azur 851N as well as Astell Kern DAP, yet keeping my LS50W because I like it a lot. Currently, I connect them with my mac mini i5 which I use as a Roon server as well and now as a streamer via USB-B, which is fine set up for now, IMO.
I would really appreciate if you criticize my imaginary(!) set up, which I would like to obtain eventually but instead of making few more mistakes, I would love to get your wisdom and expertise which will probably save me a sh*t ton of money
KEF LS50W (Which I already own and like a lot)
Chord Hugo 2
Steamer (not very certain about Hegel’s functionality, though could be wrong):
Bluesound node 2i
AudioQuest cables with a sequence - 2i to Hugo via coax, Hugo to h190 via rca, h190 to ls50 via rca as well.
If I made a mistake in my scheme, please, correct me ASAP.
Any advice, harsh critique, stupidity notices and etc would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Huge thansk to the members of this community for taking your time and explaining me some basic stuff. Helps a lot
