Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@nymarty  I have heard the Innuos Pulsar and Auralic Ares G2.2 but not in my system or with the same DAC.  Understood that the set-up was not the same but otherwise can you share any particular thoughts about the sound of either of those two s... 
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
The Holo Red looks interesting but not sure what would make it outperform my Metrum Ambre as a Roon endpoint.  The Ambre is a Raspberry Pi device with onboard LPS and Femto clocks. What I do like about the Red is the option to use it as a streame...

Isn’t the Grimm MU1 a server/streamer combination? Any sonic advantage to using it in the streamer, or Roon endpoint, capacity only?  
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
Good suggestions here - thanks everyone. The HiFi Rose RS130 looks interesting and would maybe be good for what I intend. I was also interested to learn more about the Musica Pristina A Cappella III, and the American company which I was not previ...

PURON RESOLVE creates new options for better sound
Yes. SNL back in the good old days.  Yup, the curse of old age, that we can remember how much funnier things were when we could laugh at stupid stuff without worrying about political correctness.

Good thoughts on the Rose.  Their units have been getting positive feedback lately.  I have owned the Bricasti M5 and while I like the Signature Rendu better, it is still a good unit so bettering the SQ of the Bricasti through the Rose is an achie...

I have owned the NA eno system (filter + network cable) and currently own the NA muon system and also their USB cable.  The stuff is well-made and comes sensibly packaged in a sturdy box.  You get the impression of quality. I might have heard a b...

@yyzsantabarbara - I remember hearing about Playback Designs and their buffering technology at least 10 years ago. Amazing seems to be a frequently used descriptor. Many praises about the SQ. Pricy though for the new stuff - Playback Designs MPS-X... 
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
After looking a bit closer, the streamer market seems fluid with manufacturers revamping line-ups, frequently upgrading models, and increasing prices.  This may not be the time to put money into a newest model streamer. In the Lumin line-up, the ...

@audphile1 - Good points.  I thought I heard Aurender was, or was soon to be,  Roon ready.  I unintentionally left Lumin out.  What would be the the appropriate Lumin product (streamer only, $5-10K)?  
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@jbuhl - I appreciate your thoughts but would like to stay focused within the approximately $5-10K (new) price range for clarity when comparing devices.  Also, anything significantly below or above that price range would likely be paired with a wh... 
roon sound wasn't as good
But the server (core) usually matters far less than the player. @fuzztone - I also have found this to be true. My server is in my network room, and streamer in my system room. I like the sound from the Signature Rendu SE optical streamer better... 
PURON RESOLVE creates new options for better sound
@hilde45 - Nice, pass the Shimmer please, I need some for my butterscotch pudding! Regarding PURON RESOLVE, I am finding it hard to even find any information about it.  There is a YouTube video but Underwood HiFi, a popular Puron dealer, doesn't ...
