I’m looking for a cheap endpoint for Audirvana? that’s hopefully gapless and highres.
I’m looking for an audio server solution. I’m considering Roon and Audirvana.
Right now I’m using VOX and a free alternative, using OneDrive and an iPhone or iPad with a cheap app called CloudBeats. With those solutions I can use both, the iPad or the iPhone as endpoints and output Highres to the Dragonfly Red external DAC and directly to my analog preamp. It sound great! Better than my $1,000 USD old Olive 03HD server. The only downsize is that I can’t control them remotely. And can only send via AirPlay music to my multichannel system.
So, I’m considering Audirvana or Roon, Roon can use both as endpoints too. But not Audirvana, and right now I can only use it on my iMac, which I don’t spend much time sitting in front of. Audirvana does sees my Integra AV/Receiver as an endpoint and can send music to it, highres music I guess, my receiver doesn’t say what’s being input in NET mode. But that’s it, can listen on my handheld devices or my hifi stereo system.
So, what’s a cheap endpoint I can use for my stereo system? That Audirvana can see and send highres music to it, and that will output RCA stereo. If I find anything I can then use Audirvana for my stereo and multichannel system, and keep using the free alternative for my handheld devices
Thanks for any advice.
