I really like Roon but as every one will be aware it does not work with the NAC 272. I have a core on a NAS drive. MY question is if I use the MUso qb2 which is Roon ready in multi room mode with the NAC 272 is the sound quality coming from the mu so qb2 and being streamed to the NAC 272 or is the NAC 272 own streamer being used?
In the past I used an Allo Digione (that was before the Signature Digione was released) into an ND5XS – this worked a treat too. And as you note, this doesn’t cost the world – certainly not by Naim standards…
So I received the señore upnp. Loaded roon.
The sound is dramatically reduced. It’s like some one putting a plastic bag over speakers .
To make sure it’s not the internet I listened to the same song on the Naim app which is far better.
Those Apple chargers are pretty noisy things, so I don’t think it’ll be helping.
Roon have never claimed that their transport sounds any better than UPnP, but I do think it can sound as good. Worth persevering, I would say.
I would expect that to be a bit better than an iPhone charger, although it may be worth experimenting with some other PSUs if you have the patience and can demo them with the option to return.
Rather than focusing exclusively on power supplies, it might be worth checking your Roon configuration. It’s easy to change the Roon Core settings on their app, and generally I find it best to keep things like DSP turned off.
Can you plug a usb SSD drive into the Sonore upnp bridge USB port and this acts as core? Just thinking might be another option rather than a NAS drive which i use at the moment.
Also the sound quality has picked up, not sure why. The volume going to full volume is very very annoying to.
