Hello from the shortly to be separated UK. Hopefully our relationships in Europe and around the world will not deteriorate. Too much nationalism is not good for anyone. Probably like many here, I've been around music all my life. I'm joining Head-Fi to learn about how to produce the best music(al) experience I can (at home with hi-fi equipment) within my budget and what things make a difference and go together to make that possible. My latest adventure is using Roon on my (recently rebuilt) PC and thinking about how to get the best sound I can into a new pair of Ruark Audio MR1 MK2 speakers connected to the PC. The optical SPDIF link has amazed me since I'm so used to PC audio being quite poor. And Roon is able to push some great sound out of the PC. I have added a REL TZero subwoofer to fill out the bottom end of the small speakers, which has greatly enhanced the sound without being noticeable in themselves. It somehow does not seem to be true Hi-Fi, but it has been great to explore music from Tidal (through Roon) and <cough> Spotify <cough> [there I've admitted it, sorry guys]. The amount of music out there is truly amazing. I want to use the forums here to explore and develop my rather limited systems. In summary, I guess I'm here to learn, just like everyone else!
