roon sound wasn't as good
properly implemented using a sufficiently powerful and dedicated server, and using proper connections with proper galvanic isolation to the downstream components, i have found that roon does not degrade sound some companies like innuos et al esse... 
Network Acoustics Products?
i agree with the comment expressed that the na passive filters tend to smooth/dull the sound of the streamed content subtly i prefer the etherregen (and outboard clock) to handle the incoming ethernet feed personally, it is what i settled on afte... 
LTA Ultralinear Plus Integrated vs. Pass Labs XA25/EAR 868pl
op the m3 sapphires certainly did not work me, glad they are working for you i have not had the smaller lta ultralinear amp, sorry, so i cannot comment directly on that... i have quite a store of old stock british and dutch el34 and kt77 tubes f... 
Need suggestions on a streaming solution!

i have the master edition a6 streamer/dac and now i have tried the same unit with lps upgrade (a worthwhile upgrade for resolving systems) very very nice sounding unit in the ’clear and clean’ school... a convincing facsimile of the weiss dac sch... 
Advice regarding separate DAC purchase
I would concentrate on the sound characteristics of the DAC and not the technology. Denfrips are highly regarded DACs for their price. I’ll let someone else chime in on the contrasting the two. solid advice above from @ghdprentice the op did ... 
Maggies and subwoofer integration
let’s not confuse generalities with specifics: -- sure sub swarms of 3-4-5 subs work well, but in the op’s 11x13 room it might just be overkill... -- someone who hasn’t heard maggies with subs well integrated, well they simply haven’t heard this... 
Maggies and subwoofer integration
another strong vote for rel sub pairs, using the high level (speaker) connection -- wonderful match easy to integrate but in a small 11x13 room, a single rel should work fine parenthetically, i recently tried (due to the all the youtube talking ...
