Congrats on your new DAC! Looks good. Did you demo a TotalDAC6? On servers, the W20 is old and expensive, but is well built. You could buy used. There are some threads on WBF about the SGM server beating the W20. If you can update it to run your system going forward. I am nervous about the Aurender APP, how good it is. I like Roon and would probably insist any server can run that flawlessly. You probably won't be up sampling with your DAC? So processing power or HQ player may not be required. That takes the need for super power and the heat problems that causes. Thus a cheaper server option could sound just as good as long as the power supply and USB or other output is very well designed. In other words you probably don't need a W20 for a great sound. https://www.whatsbestforum.com/show...-EVO-Edition-in-Hong-Kong&p=526463#post526463 The TotalDAC server or the Lampizator server are good value for the sound quality. But you may be best building your own if you want value for money and the ability to updated, change out parts etc. I nearly got an Aurender but decided to stick with what i can tweak instead.
