    I understand that the Squeezebox Touch can be a Roon endpoint - so does this mean that devices that 'emulate' a Touch (such as Squeezelite and Daphile) also be an endpoint for Roon?

    Apologies for not responding @Bill!
    I cannot say for sure whether Vortexbox and Roon Core could coexist peacefully but i have successfully ran a Roon Bridge on a Vortexbox so i actually played music from Roon at the same time as i was ripping BlueRay films... In other words, i'd wager the odds are with you!

    And regarding using Squeeze emulators as endpoints, yes, i belive so, even if i have some difficulties seeing why? The Endpoint is really light software and available for almost any os/hardware?

    Yeah you can run a Pi as a Roon endpoint with Bridge. Works great. I also had Spotify Connect running on it at the same time so could switch between both services when needed.

    I used to sweat bullets over this stuff, but I trust the Roon guys.
    They have worked with Meridian for so many years and they really know thier sh*t.

    Roon is genuine step change next level stuff in my opinion, and as much a part of the music chain as any dac, valves or fancy cable. (Or expensive fuses )

    It all matters.
    Having just experienced Roon, I have to agree with you Gaz it is superb and makes most other systems look dated and a bit prehistoric. Great to use and really does take digital software interface to the next level.
