Is anybody using Roon with the PSA DS/bridge noticing a SQ difference?
I’m using Roon with a Bryston BDP-2. The Bryston is overkill with Roon (in Roon Ready mode, I turn off ALL other Bryston services). I am currently in the minority in loving the Roon/Bryston sound – less lower midrange/upper bass bloom compared to MPD, giving some folks the impression of less depth – I think it sounds more accurate and realistic.
For reference, my setup is a Windows10 computer running Roon (upstairs theater room), connected wirelessly to my network, on which is a Netgear 12TB NAS (downstairs office). The Bryston in the music room is hard connected to the network, and connected to the PSA DS via USB (Regen w/ iFi power supply). I use an iPad as a remote.
Since I’m no longer using much of the Bryston functionality, I’m starting to consider the PSA bridge and eliminating a box (and an interface) from my system.
So I am looking for SQ impressions from Roon/bridge users. Thanks!
