I’ve been a long time fan of Roon and I recently purchased a dCS Bartok with headphone amp - what a fantastic pair!
I have not yet connected the Bartok to my speaker-based system; I’ve only been headphone listening. But I’m starting to imagine what a new system might look like with the Bartok serving both headphones and speakers.
My current speaker system is the Resolution Audio Cantata system with Harbeth P3ESR speakers in a small room (the Roon Nucleus + and Bartok are in the same cabinet). I’ve had the RA system since 2007, but it has been updated over the years. I can start by running the Bartok to the RA Cantata amp. (I currently have the RA Cantata connected to the Nucleus via USB; the Bartok is via ethernet through the network.)
But I’m also a minimalist at heart and I’m imagining how one could simplify even further. Has anyone here used active speakers with the Bartok (or dCS in general)?
This is simply a discovery exercise at this point. I don’t have any immediate plans to make changes.
