There's also an interesting looking Volumio Prima, but that doesn't appear to be sold in the USA.
I appreciate the comments about the Cambridge CXN V2.I have a question about Roon. If I am not going to store music on any type of storage device and have only 1 audio system - in which all devices will be hard-wired to each other, then why run Roon? In all likelihood, my streamer will be exclusively streaming Qobuz, or possibly Tidal if I purchase a MQA-compatible device. I've read only a couple of articles about how Roon works.
If you're only using Tidal or Qobuz, I think Roon doesn't offer a lot of value. Roon seems to really come into play when you've got a library of your own files, and multiple streaming services.
Speaking of the Volumio, it is now for sale in the US! I would reach out to Skip at Audio Thesis. He is now carrying the Volumio, the CXN V2, and Lumin. He can talk you through the differences, and help you land on what will work best for you.
I use MQA and have a fully compliant MQA setup, but find it sonically pointless.
Was into mods for awhile, but $1500 to mod an $1100 CXN v.2 seems financially backwards although ModWright is well respected.
Good to know. I searched all over, including on Volumio's dealers page, and found nothing.
I have the Andover Audio Songbird Internet Audio Streamer only $129 Besides Tidal it gets Spotify, Qobus etc.Phone based controller. It replaced Volumio on a Raspberry Pi that was glitchy. Larry
