Revisiting Computer versus Streamer
Posted by David Lawrence on April 7, 2021 at 08:15:01:
To start, please forgive my ignorance in asking for more clarification about an issue that has already been discussed.
Some time ago people helped me arrive at my current computer arrangement: On my MacBook Pro, I am streaming Tidal through Audirvana without oversampling. (I prefer non-oversampling digital.). Through a cable to a Musical Fidelity V-Link 192 in my main room, and and (Emotiva) Blue Tooth in a secondary system--I am sending the digital respectively to Audio Note and ANK Audiokits NOS/1X Oversampling Dacs. These system sounds pretty good to me, although not as good as vinyl.
In these systems would I get significantly better sound with a better, inexpensive streamer, such as a perhaps a Raspberry Pi? Though I am ignorant about all this, I assume that I could still somehow control the streamer with my computer? Could someone briefly describe how all this could be rearranged?
Thanks a lot,
