My current setup:
Synology NAS => ethernet to gigabit switch => ethernet to Interl CoreI5 NUC running ROON ROCK =>
ethernet to Gigabit Switch => ethernet to Auralic Altair, used as ROON endpoint and Network-attached DAC.
I am a lifetime subscriber to Roon and the NUC is the latest addition to the system (because I was getting tired of Auralic’s own Lightningserver, which struggled with my large library’s frequent updates). I have files in all formats up to DSD256 and I expect them all to play in native res (or upsample to DSD256 or higher if requested).
Now I am preparing to upgrade my Altair as the next step and I want a DAC which accepts DSD256 via ethernet and works as a Roon endpoint.
I have already eliminated a number of high-end brands based on functionality or support (Aurender does not do Roon, T+A does not accept DSD via ethernet, etc…).
So far we have left in the running:
- Auralic Vega G1
- Auralic Vega G2
- Lumin T2
I am looking to learn about the PS Audio DirectStream DSD DAC
I am trying to understand what signal / resolution the PS Audio Directstream DSD with Bridge II and latest firmware will accept via ethernet. Is is still DSD64 only? Something else? Thank you for your time in reading this.
