    Interesting, I haven't heard a difference between Roon's RAAT and Chromecast and native apps on a Naim Uniti Atom.. even just 16/44.1

    But, there is a difference in how they work on the Atom.

    For Roon in the Atom, there is no file decoding happening - the decoding is done upstream by the Roon Core/Server.

    For Chromecast and the native apps with the Atom, the decoding is being done by the Naim, so would have slightly higher processor activity internally.

    But still, I don't hear the differences.

    Has anyone used this DAC/amp with Hifiman's new HE1000se -headphones? If you have, how was the sound?

    @iFi audio now you formally updated the title of the thread to "Standalone. Streamer. DacAmp". Does that mean you are going to update the firmware with streamer in mind? :darthsmile:

    Hehe. It's been a streamer since the day it was released (UPnP, Airplay) :darthsmile:

    Networked DAC, network player, streaming DAC - all different names of the same thing.

    Em2016 is correct! It's always been a streamer!

    Oh! The most non-negative Roon related comment so far...

    The door remains slightly open...

    How many hours of burn-in is recommended for the Pro iDSD?
     
  13. iFi audio
    Hi there, right the Pro iDSD. In an ideal world, you are looking at 4 days full time per 'stage' as they all have different signal paths. So, 4 days each for solid stage, tube state and tube state plus.

    I mean, it still sounds great out of the box but this is what we'd suggest as 'burnt in' in an ideal world scenario.

    Hope this answers your question.

    I don't feel like pro idsd sounds much different over time. My personal feeling with manufacturer burning recommendation especially those who say you need to burn in for 300hours+ is so you can't return it :).
     
  15. bluesaint
    The tubes needs some burn-in (~50hrs for long dormant tubes) to clam down a bit if you swapped tubes, but the stock tubes according to Ifi are pre-burned in so imo probably don't need that much burn-in..
