Turntable/Phono Stage: - KAB Technics SL-1200mkII. Dynavector 20XH
Other Source(s): - The networked Mac Mini music server up in my office contains local music files and supports the Tidal streaming service. The Mac Mini is also running Roon and serves music down to the microRendu network streamer in the basement system. In this regard, the Mac Mini is acting as a NAS running the Roon RAAT protocol.

- I use the Roon App on the iPad Mini 4 as the touch screen interface into my music library, local playlists, as well as Tidal and the playlists I have setup in Tidal. The iPad manages it all and it is either up in my office or down in the basement where ever I happen to be listening to music. I can also stream my music to the portable iPad itself while in the garage or backyard.
