  1. Hi I'm playing around with the idea to use a Single Computer Board (SCB) as a music streamer rather than a full blown PC. I have two questions regarding that. 1) How do these devices (Odroid and Raspberry Pi2) compare to a full blown PC? Are they better soundwise? Worse? The same? Different? Did anyone ever measure or compare the two? 2) I'm thinking of building the following device: Odroid or Raspberry Pi2 board (good following, broad support, the Odroid is slightly more expensive and has higher energy consumption but is more powerful) Linear power supply. At the moment I am thinking a small Teddy Pardo as the maximum I'd need is 20 watts. SOtM tX-USBhub with a linear power supply, connected to the SBC through a Male A to Male B USB connector. Good USB cable (Chord Sarum) Uptone Audio Regen DAC Music source is a Synology NAS connected over home network (Cat7 cable, two switches and powerlines). Running on Raspbian/MPD or Volumio or something along those lines I want to play CD quality and hi-res on it. No upsampling or format conversion. Anything I would need to look out for? Yours Arie
