    A few thoughts. - I found the Lumin D2 thread on Roon and followed the advice from user wlie (the tech guy from Lumin who gives the preferred settings in Lumin and Roon app) and it really helped. Here’s the thread - it’s long...

    I've enjoyed digital audio for quite some time, ditching my high end CD transport in 2005 for a Mac Mini based music server feeding a high end DAC, and later adding a highly modified Squeezebox SB3 with a custom linear power supply.
