Connected and burning-in but… already breathtaking
I have the Ambre delivering today and the Onyx later this week!!
Nice, how do you have it hooked up? I2s or COAX?
I2S is the way to go…
How do you connect a PC to an I2S input?
Do you need a separate PCI Express card?
Or does the Ambre act as the bridge?
PCIe card or bridge (AudioByte Hydra Z or similar).
you use I2S from Ambre to connect to DAC.
I use the Wyred4Sound Dac2V2se 10th Anniversary Dac. The cost is 4500.00. I am running I2S
See your first request for details.

Is that an Explorer or Explorer2?
They don’t do MQA only Explorer 2
His issue is Roon doesn’t always recognise it as an accredited product I think.
