  1. IMHO the system should all be connected by Ethernet cable for the best performance. Even the best WiFi network can be unreliable, hard wired is best.
  2. I run a very similar system with Roon Rock in a i5 NUC via ethernet in another room. Currently I use a Moon Mind HD streamer, PS Audio Direct Stream Junior DAC with bridge streamer in built and a Raspberry PI 3's with Roopie + LCD screen. Previously I ran a Sonore Micro Rendu, but upgraded my DAC to the DSJ and sold the rendu. The Moon Mind HD is a very classy renderer/streamer and my go to streamer/end point. The DSJ bridge comes a close second. Previously I ran the Micro Rendu and this was a great option and sounded fine and worked well. I don't use the RPi with Roopie for audio, just the visual display and control and this is a very neat addition to my set up. Of course with Roon you can now use your iPhone and iPad as end points around the house and for headfi which is a great development. I can't comment on the other streamers/end points you mentioned. But my friend runs a Bluesound Node and he is happy with that. As always down to money. But the Micro Rendu is a very good product for the money. The other budget option is a Chromecast which you can use as an end point and also display Roon on a TV.
  3. Sonore MicroRendu is hard to beat as a streamer for the price. I run a Moon Mind which is awesome, but that might be too pricey for you. Others worth a look: Cambridge Audio CXN (V2) Bluesound Node 2A Audiolab
  4. Where is Lavington? I would check to see if there are any members close by that have digital set ups that could help show you how it all works. I am a big fan of Roon and run this on an NUC with a SSD connected to a DAC and Amp with a Ropieee LCD display. But you need a wired ethernet home network to make this work. Lots of options already mentioned above that would work, as well as Sonore MicroRendu, BlueSound Node, SOTM, Moon Mind.....the list is endless these days. But for me I think Roon is now the gold standard in music management, then you just add DAC, streamer/renderer, Amp of choice.
  5. Glwts - I’ve got a DSJ & luv it. I use a Moon renderer via Xlr & the Roon Bridge, both sound excellent. It even works with Spotify connect if that’s your bag!
  6. GLWTS, I've got one of these and connected via XLR into a good DAC they sound awesome, but alas no Roon.
  7. The Yiggy is an awesome DAC. I had one a while back and sold it to try something different. GLWTS.
  8. Item: Rotel RA-1520 Integrated Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $500 $600 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is my Rotel RA-1520 Integrated Amp (Black). This is an analog integrated amp and has no digital inputs. I have had this amp for about 4 years and it has worked flawlessly. The amp has had little use as I mainly used it as the amp for my outdoor speakers and as a preamp for my main room connecting to a Rotel RB-1552 Power Amplifier (also for sale). The amp has inputs for CD, Tuner, Tape and Aux as well as a moving magnet phono input. Power output is 2 x 60 watts and it drove my Monitor Audio Bronze speakers with no trouble. Amp comes with remote control and has 12 volt trigger out to connect to other equipment. I found this to be a good flexible amp as it can drive two sets of speakers and also has pre-outs so can act as a preamplifer. The only blemish is a slight scratch on the top plate mesh cover. Apologies for the stock photos, I will add some location pics soon. The amp can be auditioned in Perth and shipped to other locations at buyers expense and arrangement. Pictures:

The amp has been fantastic and has plenty of power to drive most speakers, 2 x 120 watts into 8 ohms. This amp is silver and also has a 12 volt trigger to connect with other equipment.
