Hi I am trying to find out if it worth to buy a dedicated streamer like the innuos zenith mk3.
Today I have a Intel NUC running ROCK. As a RAAT I am using the miniDSP HD Studio connected to my DAC via S/PDIF.
My NUC has begun to make an irritating noise and because it’s a old, I can no longer get a fan-less cabinet.
The innuos zenith mk3 are getting a lot of great reviews and can act as a roon server and endpoint.
It’s not powerful enough to upscale to DSD or running complex DSP functions. But it looks good (
Would it be better to get a new NUC and a better endpoint? or should I choose a high end streamer?
