Ok, here goes. For some reason I have a brain disconnect when it comes to making an advance into a complete file, download, ripped, system. I envy people on this site that listen to all there music from a laptop that goes into there main rig. I have an up to date DAC that I am not using to its full capacity. I have stereo FLAC through my Bluesound Vault but all my mch discs are via my player, which is cool and sounds great but having a ripped, SACD, DVD-A, BD-A, etc, collection played via one source would be ultimately cool. This is my desire, let it be known. Maybe I can hire somebody to go into the new horizon? In the SF Bay Area.1. Yes, from my NAS via JRMC or Roon through multichannel DAC.
2. Why bother when I can play the files themselves?
3. I play all multichannel (FLAC, WAV, DSD) from files.
