Sorry for my bad English……just want to ask some quesions about it,it will be grateful if I can get some tips of it,Thanks!
Considering for a network player system recently,I would like to choose a Linn for DAC (I have listened to it for one time and get deeply attracted by it!the Klimax DSM/3)and of course it is a network player.
When I was just using a pair of KEF LS50 Wireless II,no storage stuffs were used with it,I just used them with Airplay or Bluetooth,and now,when using a network player such as Linn,though I will listen to the streaming files on Apple Music,Tidal,Qobuz and so on,obviously more than local files,a good Roon core(if Roon is used) and NAS(of course a server)will be important(or the K41 G4 will be more suitable?just a bit more than the half of the price of K50).
I’ve compared the Dela N1-S38 and fidata’s flagship in Japan,and Now I’m back to China,according to the price,buying a Melco doesn’t seem to be a very good choice(though I do like the sound of Dela’s,pretty musical and bass is suitable for me), and I started to look at the Antipodes,appreciating its concepts though I haven’t listened to any of it.
Now,Antipodes seems to be the BEST choise,if I choose the K50,since there are two parts in it(player and server),if I use the K50 as a NAS and Roon Core,does ONLY the Server part work?(then the bridge on Linn works),but if I use USB or Coaxial out to the Linn(both parts in K50 work then),where is the Bridge then?Does the bridge on Linn still work?(since the Linn ones is pretty nice)
Comapring the sound of those two methods above seems to be interesting,will chosing the K50 be a waste?Is choosing K41 better?Will it sound better though only the Server part of K50 works?
Or it is just better to choose other DACs which doesn’t have a network player function like a CH C1.2 without any card(maybe a USB one)to combine with K50?
It will be grateful to get some advice on building a system like it.
