I have actually a NAS Synology for my library music connected with ethernet to the SOtM SMS 100 connected in USB to the DAC.
I want to use ROON but I don’ t really know how it’s possible.
- Can I use as a Raspberry Pie 3 as Roonbridge but if it’s possible how can I connect everything ? Do I need Roon Server in my NAS ?
Thanks a lot for your response.
Ethernet (or WiFi) —> RPi —> DAC.
Roonbridge on the RPi. If your NAS has enough juice then run Roon on there, else run Roon on a PC, Mac, or Linux machine.
BTW - the Allo USBridge is a better choice than RPi.
My NAS is a Synology 1512+, with HDD Red WD, do you think it has enough juice ?
So, I don’t need anymore my SoTM SMS-100…I hope not losing sound quality without the SOtM.
Thanks a lot for your answer !
I can’t speak to the NAS juice, but others can.
As far as sound quality and loss thereof, I have both an SMS-200 and several RPis and I can find no sonic difference. The SMS-100/200 and an RPi are both SBCs (Small Board Computer) .
Still, I recommend an Allo USBridge which is a better SBC than an RPi.
