  1. I would like to reform the way I listen to music today and migrate to a Roon platform. What's holding me back is that I don't understand if I can have endpoints that can implement FIR crossovers and output over a multi-channel DAC, the way I do it today with JRIVER convolving filters created with Audiolense. So let's say my bedroom system consist of a pair of 2-way active speakers, where each of the 4 drivers is driven by its own Class D amp, which amps in turn are fed by a multi-channel DAC (like the miniDSP U-DAC8) connected to a NUC running Win 10 and JRIVER for convolver duties. Today, this is a DLNA endpoint (through JRIVER) but it is my understanding that this doesn't work with Roon, where Roon needs to own the queue and the endpoints are stupid. So how could I achieve this with Roon? Convolve at Core/Server level rather than at endpoint? I know Roon can convolve but can it convolve multiple filters and streams for different rooms/endpoints in parallel? Can Roon even convolve a stereo signal into a multi-channel signal or is it limited to stereo output only (i.e. room correction but no crossovers)? Do I need to involve HQplayer somehow? Ideally, I would like to use RPi 3/DietPi/Roon Bridge endpoints but I doubt they would have the CPU power to convolve say six channels of 131k tap FIR filters. Even if the Roon Server could convolve, is RPi 3/DietPi/Roon Bridge compatible with any multi-channel USB DACs? What about Signalyst's NAA instead of Roon Bridge, does that change anything? Or could I just install Roon Bridge on a Windows 10 NUC and use JRIVER WDM output to a multi-channel DAC? If that's the only way, I'll go with that, but it's just not a very elegant solution....
  2. Desktop Crossover?

    Hi. My apologies if this is the wrong place, it is my first post. I recently got in to computer audio by wanting to use a very old Audio Alchemy DAC-in-the-box that was sitting in my closet collecting dust. I bought a NuForce U192S they had on sale for $50 over at Audio Advisor. The combo sounds much better than the 'audio out' of my Dell Ultra Small Form Factor PC even through some old Altec Lansing computer speakers. Soon I upgraded the speakers to some equally old Optimus Pro X77 metal cabinet speakers that I had lying around. The foam surrounds were shot, so I upgraded them with some Dayton drivers from Parts Express. I have a small decent 10W amp driving the old X77s but will probably soon replace with a Topping TP-21 desktop amp or the Emotiva x100. Well, now I want to add a sub, but I really would like a small desktop crossover so I could play with the crossover point on the fly. I found a Rolls SX45 that would be perfect but sadly the reviews say it sucks. I was thinking perhaps a 1/2 DIN old school car audio equalizer/crossover but thought I would see if you may recommend something better. I'd like to stay small (like the size of the Audio Alchemy DITB) and relatively inexpensive, say under $200. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance. -dave
