Interesting experience with two very different speaker designs
@pfiche and @arafiq I think you are both right.  arafiq, I am definitely a beginner hobbyist and I was genuinely shocked that the speakers I made sounded as good as they do.  The other OB designs I made, though promising, had serious flaws.  I wou... 
Interesting experience with two very different speaker designs
@pficheYes, that was my general assessment of the W8 Eminence 15 combo!  Great for drums guitar and vocals.  Bass energy could get a bit boomy even after I put them on spikes.  I agree about the dryness.  Its not the meatiest of midranges though i... 
Small green computer sonic transport i5
I've had mine for 5 months now.  Great purchase.  Much more stable and better sound quality than using my iMac as a roon core.  I also use it with a uRendu

can't stream in hi-res on Roon HELP
@erik_squires The core is on WiFi.  My downstairs system (endpoint) is connected directly to the router.  The upstairs system (endpoint) is also on WiFi.  I don't have a WiFi mesh node in my office by the computer.  Perhaps that is why hi res work... 
can't stream in hi-res on Roon HELP
@fuzztone I have a mesh WiFi system with three "nodes" spread through the house.  My Roon Core is my iMac (desktop) and it connects to the internet via WiFi.  My main system is connected directly to the router with an ethernet cable as the main sy... 
can't stream in hi-res on Roon HELP
thanks for the suggestions guys.  So I used the blue sound app in my upstairs system using WiFi and it worked just fine with the highest res files in Qobuz so it seems it's a problem with Roon.  Maybe getting a dedicated computer to be the core is...
