Therefore, the set-up would be :
- PC jplay server and PLayer
- USB via Air ?

AM I correct ?

What would be a suitable set-up to make it work through RJ45 (hardaware and software) ?

Thank you guys and have a nice day.

Fred

Hy Fred,

you can try to install Roon Core on your (Windows)-PC or even Roon ROCK (if hardware fits) and use AIR for Devialet, which is implemented in Roon Core itself (no external software necessary).

I have listend with both configurations (on a ASrock BeeBox) and Ethernet (RJ45) with my D400 for several years without any issue.

Hi ! Tom, and the others , of course.

I am very pleased to join you as most of you seem to be active on this forum.

Re Roon, I used to run Roon server and player separetely on my previous system.

I am not interested in their interface and sound rendering.

What I am interested in is a very basic interface, even if Roon's is rich, I do not want to be disturbed by smart design, smart covers, library.

Re the sound, Roon is to romantic for me.

That is the reason why I would do to Jplay Femto or something else.

i.e. : my 250 is not a Pro, so not RAAT and Roon Ready.

As far as this Devialet is not Upnp friendly, what would be the alternative

Then it is either USB or Air over Ethernet.

Hy Fred,

before Roon, I used JRiver/JRemote and/or Foobar/MonkeyMode on the same PC with RJ45 and the AIR-driver from Devialet.

A good hifi-friend use the same PC also with JRiver and/or Foobar, but over USB (+ several ifi-purifiers) and the USB-driver from Devialet.

atb, Tom
Many thanks to both of you.

I will investigate the Jplay FEmto solution before, as I am sure of the musical rendering.

If it would not work on Air, I will try other options as JRiver.

Have a nice day.

After one week of listenig, what could I say... ?

Made a quick set-up with the DIY server, launched on Daphile throught USB bey and a printer USB cable... as I sold the previous (hifi cables & CO Super Ultimate, French Manufacturer). I is really, really good.

What a space, what a dynamic, what a transparency, what a detail.

One single box to power the speakers and to fill the 350 m3 of the living room. Wouha !!!!

Had not enough time to do more things on the system. The weather is fine and so many things to do outside.

Really waiting for bad weather conditions to do some tries with AIR through RJ45 and any compatible software.

Really excited.

It is more than working.

Welcome to the club and enjoy!

It is really in a league of its own when it comes to dynamic and transparency.

Many thanks Jean-Marie.

I would not hesitate to give more feedbacks later on.
