Having fun broadcasting my own radio station over my LAN.
Roon Core > D to A conversion >
package into icecast stream using AAC/192kb/VBR >
Play on any internet radio endpoint
Nice to have both Roon RAAT and Icecast server protocols on my LAN. Of course the SQ of RAAT is a magnitude better. The fun part is that all my desktops, phones and SBC can play the icecast stream. VLC works great as done iTunes. Will be exploring off the shelf table top internet radios.
My observation is that the friction to play my music is reduced. Tune it to radio and start listening.
Next step is to play the radio stream when I am mobile.
