From windows/jriver to linux/roon
I would like to share how happy I am with the move from windows / jriver to linux/ roon.

A few days ago I upgraded my windows 10 pro with several patches from Microsoft and also Jriver to the latest version. It went wrong and I started to have drops, noise, etc. I tried everything I remembered and even reinstalled windows, air and jriver. No success. I was doing something wrong ... but never found out what.

Then I decided to install linux Ubuntu 19.04 and roon. It was very simple and worked without any special settings. That was good, but the best was that the sound quality improved a lot, and I mean a lot. A jump in quality greater than the last hardware upgrade (the pro upgrade with the new board). I can’t stop listening Smile

With windows / jriver I used air and kernel streaming: I think no changes where made to the bytes sent to Devialet.
Now with linux / roon i am using air, not the RAAT. So in theory the same bytes are sent, using the same hardware. Well the result is very different.

I also tried RAAT but is I got tired a few minutes after.

The system is simple: proac 3.8, transparent super xl, Devialet 250 pro ic, aq cinnamon ethernet cable, fanless nuc like streamer from aliexpress, 512gb sdcard. Shunyata power cables and hydra.

roon air -> intel i6100u fanless -> audioquest  cinnamon ethernet -> devialet 250pro ci -> transparent mws xl -> proac 3.8. solid tech hybrid rack. shunyata hydra 8, shunyata anaconda helix alpha, shunyata python helix vx.
Very interesting for us JRMC devotees. I feel that SQ improved notably when I went from USB to DLNA streaming.

Most interesting though is your Win10 upgrade experience - - - - I think my media PC is in the process of undergoing the same upgrade. Fingers crossed!

You'll have to consider changing your Signature then.
JRiver v24 (Windows) >> 220Pro/CI >> Tellurium-Q Black >> PMC Twenty5.23 + two REL T7i. One White Phantom.
