Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
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... 
Network Acoustics Products?
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... 
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@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 ... 
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@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 ... 
Townshend platform under digital component or amplifier ?
To your question, I would suggest under the most sensitive of your electronics.

DAC vs Music Server
I have found greater sonic differences in the streamer (or Roon endpoint), than resulting from the server (Roon core + local files).   When comparing, I think it is important to understand what the device is being used for and in the case of the ... 
Singxer SU-6
Thanks David for the info on the power supply.  I didn't go crazy but this one looked competent and is supposed to get here from China within a reasonable timeframe.  The ifi filtered smps/wall wart power supply at 9V and 2.5A is also supposed to ... 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit. 10/2 or 10/3?
Considering the cost of copper, etc., the materials cost of your project are not exactly cheap but the labor is probably more expensive.  It will be easier to run both lines at the same time, which should reduce your labor cost compared to running... 
LPS for Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
I thought I saw that connection when I googled your device. From the picture, it appears that the A connection is the +12 VDC and the B connection is the - or return.  Looking at the connector raises the question whether this device has an intern... 
LPS for Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
If your goal is to power your router with a LPS, then you need to purchase a LPS that delivers 3A of current at 12V DC.  The LPS you purchase should come with a DC power cable to connect the LPS device to your router, and it should also come with ...
