-Best audio quality is achieved by using a 2 PC setup, with the "​player"​ running on a small computer board with a lightweight headless linux distributionLess is more. +Under construction...
- +
-With Roon, several "​player"​ applications can be used:\\ +
-- RoonBridge (currently only available on ARM7 or x64 boards)\\ +
-- Squeezelite\\ +
-- Shairport (Airport)  +
- +
-If RoonBridge is used, it is not possible to activate Shairport ​ as well - Roon cannot share an audio output with another application. Since I want the ability to use both Roon and Airplay, I decided against using RoonBridge. +
- +
-A variety of boards can be used. I am using an [[http://​www.pcengines.ch/​alix3d2.htm|Alix 3D2 board]] +
- +
-  * Install **[[Debian for Alix|Voyage Linux]]** +
-  * Install **[[Shairport-sync|]]** +
-  * Install **[[Squeezelite|]]** +

-Alix Board is fed a clean 12v **[[power_supplies|power supply]]**. It can actually run on 5v as well, so you can use a battery pack, if that's your thing...  +
- +
-Some crazy-driven hard working Koreans have tested a number of modifications on the power supply circuits (and added heatsinks):​ +

-I find it sounds great as is - probably due to good quality components and limited hardward on board. +
- +
- +
-Squeezelite runs with 15% CPU. CPU is around 30% when running simple crossover filters.+
