What have you been working on in 2020?
I am playing with multichannel + Roon. Erik, can a Pi endpoint do multichannel USB output? 
Audirvana vs Roon
I once noticed that Roon clearly sounded different than LMS. Turned out it was a different implementation of replaygain. 🙃 
Which Int. Amp with passive ATC SCM40
I have the SCM40s with a pair of Benchmark AHB2s. I’m happy.  
Streamers from miniDSP with built in room correction!
LMS is hard to beat, and piCorePlayer is very nice. I have Roon but it annoys me.The SHD Studio comes with Volumio but I turned it off. miniDPS support can feel a little haphazard but they seem to be well meaning. I had to ask for the user name /p...

Speakers for a small room
Have you downloaded REW (Room EQ Wizard) and taken a look? All you need is a calibrated mic. There might still be potential for improvement via room treatment. If you send your REW measurements to GIK, they can give suggestions (I did this). Also,...

Where to hear ATC speakers
A comparison of active and passive ATCs in the same room would be  pretty attractive. Often folks say there is a striking difference, but it would be nice to hear with one's own ears.

Review ATC SCM 40 A floorstanders.....finally
Congratulations!Did you have a chance to hear them before ordering? How long did you have to wait? 
Down to 2 speakers & I can't decide, ProAc D48R vs Spendor D9
