Not sure what you mean by "in a Media Player format" and why it is needed. Roon will directly play Multi-Channel Native DSD from my NAS. What am I missing?On the second point, this is the only product that I am aware of in a Media Player format, that will play back Multi-Channel Native DSD and supports Roon so I can have my entire collection and cover art in the one spot. Well that is the plan if the unit works as intended.
Sure but Roon plays directly to the Okto DAC8 Pro (<$1500) or the Topping DM7 ($600) via USB.In regards to pricing I agree it is expensive, however I guess you are also paying for the Video side of things. But then again Lumin's which only do 2 Channel DSD are around the same price points (though offer other features) and the Exasound at $7000 is double the price for me than the $3k Zidoo. They do have a cheaper Neo S etc but it is only 2 Native Channel DSD.
