I’m using the 8 year old MacBook using Win 7 because it works fine with JRiver and has for several years
I am looking at streaming as I probably won’t buy anymore CD’s - already have many
I am looking at other options but see no reason to but another PC just to test potential software particularly as I don’t require it currently
My Windows 10 PC is not going to be used the stereo; the WIN 7 PC is for use with the stereo - for now.
I am looking at options such as Roon (works OK, more expensive, but has more features than Audirvana but not sure most of them are of interest to me).
My main goal is organizing current CD collection and streaming Qobuz or Tidal. Audirvana seems to do this at a reasonable price
I set up Audirvana on the Windows 10 PC. Created a library. Stil ahve iisues with ipad ap and cant logon to Tidal but I presume I could eventually work these issues out
Audirvana plays to the ASIO driver on the WIN 7 PC. No Audirvana on the WIN n7 PC however.
I think all I really want to know
-is whether this represents a reasonable way to use Audirvana or not
-am I getting full resolution in this configuration
-is there some reason not to do things this way?
