If you have HQplayer this is the way to go. You will see sonic improvements and easy configuration with NAA. The NAA player will just “show up” in the HQplayer user interface and all settings and control can be done from the HQplayer user interface.
You can then run Roon of top of HQplayer for the improved user interface and feature.
I also have a question on the outputs. I am clear that there are USB and SPDIF outputs but I wondered could this be connected to a one box amp/speaker set up like the Cambridge Audio AIR100 that takes a 3.5mm input by using a USB to 3.5mm adapter?
Something like this
Its an option I was exploring for some of my secondary room endpoints…
I’m with you there. I’ve got an LPS, a Pi, plus a Chromecast Audio on Order, all ready and waiting…
Ok to be fair I had the Pi, and I bought the LPS in anticipation of RoonSpeakers. The Chromecast is actually an experiment in getting Radio into my Devialet without spending much money, so I’ll try the LPS on it just because It’s there.
At some point soon hopefully I’ll have both running Roon in some fashion.
Only experimentally of course, because I’ll still have one final hurdle - Room Correction.
John, the Sonicorbiter’s RoonReady output mode can work with USB or SPDIF, but most people will use the USB output though. The unit also a SqueezeLite output mode, DLNA/MPD output mode, and a Shairport output mode.
I am contemplating the Sonicorbiter SE, but I am in the Netherlands and tried to find a dealer (online / brick and mortar) for Sonore products, but have not found any. I am a bit hesitant to order from the US (voltage?, warranty case, tax, etc…). Anybody from let’s say the NL/BE/DE region that has a Sonic Orbiter and where did you get it?
I don’t know if this belongs in its own thread I’ll let the mods decide but by stating that the Sonic Orbiter is Roon Ready does that mean it is a Roon Bridge (aka speakers) device or are these 2 different things. If they are 2 different things, what are the differences?
