Mac Mini i7 Quad Core, PS Audio NuWave DSD DAC, iPad Mini 4, Roon + Tidal, Ayre AX-7e Integrated Amp
12-VDC 10-Amp LPS for Mac Mini, and Gigabit Ethernet switch under the hutch. Tannoy Definition D500 speakers.
Mac Mini and bench linear power supply test setup.
The Mini draws less than 6 Watts idle, and about 10 to 12 Watts playing music. It's a very efficient music server.
The Mytek Digital Stereo192-DSD DAC is now in the basement system.
The iPad Mini 4 touch screen remote control is normally with me in my office or basement listening positions
Synology NAS (4x4TB WD Reds) will backup all computers in our home & will be relocated to the basement soon.
Also tinkering with Raspberry Pi + audio add-ons. DietPi OS, Digione SPDIF card, Roon Bridge software
Select a Zone or Zones on the iPad Roon Remote App for Roon playback.
Where do I want Roon to send the music: Raspberry Pi streamer & BOSS DAC in the garage. Raspberry Pi streamer SPDIF output in my office. Mac Mini USB Direct to DAC. microRendu streamer & Mytek DAC in the basement. Or several locations at once in any combination playing the same tune in sync or different tunes.
