I finally got the C5. A big surprise! Beautiful look, very solid build, and sound signature, well, incredible for the price: Warm and well balance, great bass, also great mids and highs. Two Analog inputs and also ethernet and wifi (Airplay, spotifyconnect). An amazing little sound box.
Great Daniel, as I wrote, my experience so far is just great, awesome indeed, and as a musician I promise I´m very concern about sound . One last note: Volume is right for a small room (kitchen in my case) but for a bigger space, or outside, maybe the slightly bigger model, C10, would be the right choice due to it´s extra power. If you get it, please, let me knowhow it sound to your ears Cheers.
yes, Roon detect the C5 as an Airplay device in the Network. Anyway, in my case now, I ´m using it connected (via its stereo RCA inputs) to an RPI+Ropieee+Dragonfly to improve sound quality. Loving it so far.
The bit depth and sample rate are limited to 16 bits & 48 kHz max. This is a limitation of the Airplay protocol, and is not something that we have control over. If you play high resolution content to your device using the Airplay protocol, Roon will intelligently sense that the protocol will not support streaming that file in it’s original format and converts it to a stream that the device will accept and actually play.
