I am looking into a Roon setup, primarily for its impressive user interface. It will be installed on my PC. Presently I am using an Auralic Aries mini streamer feeding the Directstream DAC from the NAS and Qobuz using Auralic’s Lightning DS software. This setup allows me the option of shutting down the PC if desired during listening sessions. Couple of questions for people using Roon
- Would I have the option of shutting down the PC or does it need to on? I am speculating the latter as the core needs to be running. Correct?
- With the addition of the Roon, is the dedicated streamer doing anything?
