getting into streaming

So after many years of playing cd's, I'm considering getting into streaming music. I would prefer to use the DAC in my accuphase CD player; my question is I assume any streamer would require something additional to control it (smart phone, tablet etc) but I'm wondering if there is something out there that has its own controller to use to surf for songs, so I don't have to buy anything else to use it


Almost every streamer has an app that is compatible with an iPhone or android.

however, a tablet is usually the best


A Roon device can be controlled by a pc or laptop as well


the streamers all differ in terms of features and sound quality. and of course price


there are a number of steps in choosing such a device.

1 do wish to access my current CDs i.e. would I like a server which can access my library?


even with streaming having a stored library is great.

one: there are cds not online.

Two by having a library you will remember everything you like.

some servers come with rippers some do not.

what kind of digital output do I require?

what streaming content do I want to utilize?

Roon devices offer tidal and quobuzz

blue sound offers many services but they don’t sound as good as more expensive devices


Do I need Bluetooth or Airplay or chrome for the ability to access content or apps not on the streamer


We import the remarkable 432evo servers into the us.

our servers are full Roon cores and endpoints you just hook up a usb cable to your dac.

we have tested or been dealers for most major streamers: we have sold or sell bluesound, lumin Aavik,Innous aurender naim Atoll Baetis 432Evo.

Please feel free to contact us.

Martin Logan Unison is half off, comes with ARC room correction, and you would need to use the DTS Play-Fi or Spotify app. You can also use Airplay. It will also work with Alexa if you use a firestick or another amazon product:

You may want to take a look at Roon software which can allow you to build and run a virtual streaming library from many sources and work with numerous hardware setups. I’d also take a look at the new Mytek Brooklyn Bridge II ROON CORE which for $4k. pretty much does it all. see: Brooklyn Bridge II - Roon Core • Dac • Headphone • Phono • Preamp (

Virtually all use an iPad or phone. You will be navigating literally millions of albums and thousands of stations. You really want an iPad as a navigation device. 

There is a ton of things left out such as from the start buy a good modem router combo like the motorola 8702, then buy a decent Linear power supply to clean up the noise ,little green computer 12 v 8 amp.

then you needto buy 2 quality Ethernet cables ,and from Sonore a deluxe 

Ethernet to fiber optic converter for noise can’t travel overnight , then at your Ethernet end point the Sonore converter from fiber optic back to ethernet 

Jcat makes excellent usb and Ethernet cables , to do it right and at your Sonore end point the Linear Tube Audio  has by far the best LPS power supply and for $750 with very good DC cable is a bargain. Put in a synergistic Purple fuse 

parts connecxion has 20% off sales  thisis if you want to truly eliminate the noise 

for digital noise travels house to house ,Yes even if in packets that’s why I recommended a Quality combo that has docsis 3.1 which is 4x faster and far better processing power the the LPS to clean up noise to start the digital signal down stream then a hub converter . Jus5 go to little green computer , for example
