RE: Speaking of Roon

A good USB interface direct attached to a DAC should sound better than AirPlay to the Airport Express with its limited 16/48KHz resolution. USB can handle much higher resolutions and can sound excellent but it is known that the USB interface on the Pi has it's limitations.

I would look to the RPi, it's software, and it's USB interface to your DAC, as USB should not sound worse than the Airport Express.
