Many thanks in advance for responses from the experts on the forum.
My current system is using Sonos in multiple rooms, including my main listening room. But my processor can’t be grouped with Sonos. And Sonos doesn’t support high res files. So my plan was to move to Bluesound for multiple rooms, and couple that with a Roon approved DAC in my main listening room.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but based on the explanation on the Roon site, I assume that I can group any Bluesound devices with any Roon-approved DAC in a RAAT zone – correct?
For example, I’ll be able to group Bluesound devices in other rooms with the dCS Bartok Headphone DAC or with the T&A DAC 8 DSD? Or any other specific model of DAC that is listed by Roon as having their seal of approval?
I ordered two Bluesound Node 2i and one Pulse 2i to try out Bluesound. I made sure that I can return all three with no questions asked as a standard precaution.
I’m glad I did, as found this thread tonight after placing the order. My conclusion is to try it out and see if I can get Bluesound to work OK with Roon. But I take the above warning to heart, and if I can’t get it to work fairly quickly out of the box, the Bluesound components will be returned.
It is unfortunate that Sonos isn’t Roon approved and doesn’t work with RAAT. Because Sonos excels at being user friendly, and in most situations, it just plain works.
I’m hoping that Bluesound will work as reliably as Sonos. That means I can have a multiple room setup, coupled with a Roon-approved DAC in my main listening room.
