Holzohr said Elk is giving the oracle here.There is nothing wrong with liking Roon and being loyal to it if this is your preference. As I already explained multiple times, the best solution for those enamored with Roon with be continue to work directly with Roon. I indicated my expectation the Bridge will continue to support Roon as an endpoint, as well as support MQA. Paul confirmed this. Thus, Roon adherents may continue using their preferred product with PS Audio DACs.
A perfect solution, yes?
I expect Octave to beat Roon both in UI and sound. This is PS Audio’s stated goal and my bet is they will succeed, just as they did with the DirectStream.
You are free to bet against PS Audio if you like. But their track record is spectacular
And if Octave sounds better, are you going to stick with Roon?
