Sound quality - Roon RAAT vs Roon Air
#1
Hi guys,

Since it has been a few months with the RAAT support, I was wondering about your views regarding the sound quality in RAAT mode vs Air mode through Roon.

My personal opinion is that the sound through Air + Roon is significantly more refined, transparent,... that the one through Raat. And I have therefore moved back to that.

My system is very revealing with Wilson Benech speakers connected through Cord Sarum T speaker cables.

Cheers,
Bernard

I also prefer RAAT but there is a poll thread on the issue that you may like to read. There's quite a few who prefer AIR.

Are you using ethernet or wifi to connect with RAAT? There's also quite a few people who are having problems with dropouts and other issues with a gigabit speed ethernet connection. The problem doesn't occur with a 100 MBPS ethernet connection to the Devialet or if you connect by wifi, it seems to only occur with gigabit speed wired connections and not for all people. Both Devialet and Roon have been advised of the issue but despite the fact that it's now over 3 months since we got the Roon Ready update neither Devialet or Roon have come up with a fix or a statement about what the issue is. This problem also does not occur with AIR.

I agree with you, AIR is better than RAAT at the moment (I just added my vote to the poll David mentioned)
