I can not believe the excellent support I am receiving here.
I do not want to compromise.
Was never really interested in Sonore.
Just not way I want to run things.
I just purchased PS audio DAC and transport.
Am enjoying the upgrade in SQ quality over the internal DAC in my processor pre amp.
My friend who sold it to me moved up to DCS combination.
He keeps encouraging me to get my Mini out of my system.
So have others.
My music is stored on my NAS drive.
I am looking for a fully functional Streaming device but really wanted to keep Audirvana.
I do not like software than tries to control its owner.
I do not want a machine to make decisions for me .
Audirvana does not do any of this.
It is a simple program that sounds amazing.
Roon is not for me.
I was encouraged to get an Aurender but was not interested in their software.
Was informed I could not use Audirvana with it.
The compromise seem to be making is letting go of Audirvana .
Will look for something simple.
Kind of like a dumb version as opposed to something like smart app.
I have so many video streaming devices hooked up to my system that I really do not need computer at all.
