I’ve just joined the forum as I’m considering a serious upgrade in DAC & power amp, to the DS Snr and BHK Stereo Power amp. My current system hopefully shows in my signature.
Just a question on Roon endpoints. Has anyone compared the following: microRendu vs Bridge II , on either the DS Snr or Jr ?
I already have the microRendu + LPS-1 so if I get the DS Snr I will be able to compare for myself of course.
In the mean time I would love to hear if anyone else has compared, just out of interest.
From a technical standpoint (perhaps a question for @adminpaul or @tedsmith) what are some of the features of the DS+Bridge II’s ethernet input that enable it to perform as well or better than the microRendu’s USB input? The microRendu’s USB output is very low noise, low latency, re-clocked, regenerated etc. Does the DS+Bridge II combination (ethernet input in this case) cover all these features and more? If so, could you explain.
Of course I will end up letting my ears do the deciding but I find this stuff interesting, even the technical stuff (at a high level).
Looking forward to getting into the DS world and thanks in advance
