That’s it in one. You can’t use the Strata as a Roon endpoint over ethernet, but you can as a local DAC connected to a Roon core.
I struggle to understand why PS Audio won’t play ball with RAAT on these new products. Since moving to Roon it has opened up a world of collaborative technology rather than the vendor locking I had under Sonos.
Mixing and matching endpoints from BlueSound, MSB, Lumin and even Raspberry Pis for unique purposes gives a fantastic ecosystem to play with.
The cult of PS Audio is strong but the flexibility that RAAT brings is more important to me than proprietary lockin.
