Separate streamer made a notable difference

I purchased a Roon Nucleus + with some reserve. It’s bested my custom PC experience. I’ve had it well over a year…& recently added a Lumin U2 Mini. It’s bested my direct to DAC set ups. Floating the DACs, by adding a streamer, has made a notable difference in sound quality. So much so that I regret not having done it immediately when I initially purchased the Nucleus +. Just sharing in case anyone else is on the fence…try it…just be sure of a generous return policy if things don’t work out. I purchased the Nucleus from the Roon store. I purchased the Lumin from Upscale Audio.
