My ultimate goal is SQ. Don’t mind putting the time into ripping and setting up meta data for my collection.
The flexibility of Roon management looks interesting but no real experience with it vs Mosaic.
Any guidance on following options.
- Aurender/Innuos/Esoteric streaming/Storage/Rippers. Obviously expensive options.
- QNAP NAS that can run a roon core. Much Cheaper than 1.
Reading the forums seems to indicate Ethernet connection to either 1 or 2. Running through an uptone audio etherregen switch. Option 1 or 2 would be on side A of the switch with Side B running into Rossini.
So basic question is whether to expect a SQ benefit in option 1 vs option 2? Again reading the forums here by using ethernet, nothing matters until it hits the final buffer in the Rossini so other than the time and energy of me having to rip everything manually and mess around with metadata is there any reason to spend 5x/10x/20x for option 1 vs 2.
Thanks in advance and very happy w first week of Rossini/Clock.
