    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?

    Thanks - it looks like I need to do some research!

    Cheers. Bill

    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.

    Nice one james.
    FWIW, my 300B amp doesn't sound slow, fast, accurate, spacious, warm, linear, compressed, or any of those things mentioned.
    It just sounds right.

    All about the MUSIC not the hifi.
