“But five years is a long time in the digital world. Much has happened. I did see and listen to various new alternatives including NUCs (‘Next Unit of Computing’ mini-computers) which were smaller, lighter, typically less expensive, and more energy efficient than a Mac mini. Like a Mac mini, a NUC is ‘headless’, e.g., you do not need to connect a monitor or keyboard to it except for setting it up with software and such. Once set up, controlling music play is accomplished by using a wirelessly connected app on a mobile device or tablet. I also checked out serious commercial high-end music servers, and I have been impressed at times. Suffice to say it has become clear that the Mac mini is on the way out; there are quite a number of alternatives.

“For those not in the know, Chromecast is a Google-developed digital media player. It looks like a small-round puck with an HDMI dongle and allows mobile phones, computers, tablets, etc. to stream audio and visual HD content to HDMI-compatible televisions or other devices via its Micro-USB output, like to say, any compatible DAC with a likewise savoury digital-in as a Roon endpoint”

“Solomon compared Qobuz to “Apple Music, if it were high-resolution.” Says Solomon, “You can stream and download music. Unlike Apple and Tidal, Qobuz will be the first streaming platform in North America that offers true high-resolution music, up to 24-bit/192-kHz. There’s no need for a special DAC or server. Qobuz ”

CARY AUDIO DMS-500 MUSIC STREAMER REVIEW

“The feature set on this Cary makes it a very appealing option for anyone looking to get the most out of digital audio today. It allows access to all the key sources, both new and old, and its flexibility with regard to storage systems is almost unprecedented. That it doesn’t represent the last word in transparency is foiled by a relaxed and musical demeanour that means the vast majority of formats will sound appealing. Which is particularly useful if it’s used with streams from mobile devices. My final session with the DMS-500 involved the ground breaking Innuos Zenith SE network server, which gave it a boost that made things very enjoyable indeed. And that after all is the point of the exercise, is it not?”

Fidelizer Nimitra Review

“Once you have decided how you will insert it into your current system, the next decision is one of control. The most traditional method would be a UPnP control software for whatever platform you plan to use. I tried Linn Kazoo on my Mac which is free and available for any OS, it worked just fine. That being said as you already know I am a big fan of Roon and with this being both Roon Ready and with an option to be a setup Roon Endpoint, I have taken advantage of this. This means the Nimitra has become my Roon Core and I can control my Core from my iMac, my OnePlus Two phone and output music stored on the core via my phone, DACs connected to my iMac and of course, DACs connected to the Nimitra. I could have left my iMac as my Roon Core and with the Nimitra being Roon Ready streamed through it to my DAC using storage within my iMac. This is an area where Fidelizers first-rate customer support comes in as they will actually go onto customers Nimitras remotely to make sure that any drivers are installed etc for what DAC you use or to reconfigure if you decide down the line you would like use this with Roon.”

MOON NEO MIND STREAMING UPNP RENDERER REVIEW

“The Moon Neo MiND UPnP renderer/ streamer does its job so well, you sometimes wonder if you are being subtly influenced to like it through MiND control. It slots into practically any system with a DAC with ease and brings what could easily be dismissed as a ‘legacy’ system bang up to date. The chances are, if you are exploring this kind of upgrade, the Neo MiND might be your first Moon product, but once you’ve played with it for even the shortest time, you’ll realise it won’t be your last. Outstanding and highly recommended”
