TBH I’m not that fussed about ethernet input as i seem to prefer USB (which roonremote says it is RAAT, click on the purple star) I tired USB and ethernet on the Devialet 220 Pro, again USB won.
I knew roon wouldn’t work over ethernet on the Audionet DNA 1… there’s been some chat on hear about it in the past. But USB Audio 2.0 (ALSA) is fully supported and works beautifully.
I have been looking into the Antipodes EX music server which also seems to prefer its USB Audio 2.0 output so could be the perfect partner for the Audionet DAN 1.
I’ve also been reading that Aurender have incorporated Ravenna into there latest updates:
February 2018 - Aurender go Ravenna - Aurender’s X100 Music Server will show at the Hamburger Hifi Tage connected directly to a Ravenna AoIP network to demo the advantages of Ethernet data distribution without USB’s length restrictions. Merging Technologies’ Ravenna protocol supports up to DSD256 and 32/384 PCM. This update will feature on Aurender’s A10, N10, N100 (N100C, N100H), X100L (X100S) and W20.
I take it they don’t support roon, yet?
