RE: "DAC can be configured as a Roon end point with the inclusion of an Ethernet port"...

Maybe a bit more to it that that circuitry-wise, at least according to Paul McGowan as he discussed the 'Bridge II' option of his Direct Stream DAC at an audio meet-up I attended recently. That said, the 'Bridge II' is more than just a Roon end-point as I understand it (at $899 list, we would hope so).

But how much processor power does it take to be a Roon endpoint?

Not much, I'm guessing, as a $35 Raspberry Pi will do nicely.

But why just Roon?

Why not have an ethernet connection on all DACs and allow them to act as multiple endpoints like the uRendu?

No need for WiFi built in (not a fan of radios in audio myself), but perhaps a USB port on the back which would allow a WiFi adapter to be plugged in?
