Seeking some advise please regarding USB source on SOTM. I currently have the SOTM sms-200 with S Booster power supply. I use Roon and my music library is on a 2 TB Samsung SSD attached to new I7 core Mac Mini (Roon Core). From there the music file travels via router & Ethernet into another room where a SOTM Cat 7 audiophile Ethernet cable takes over and feeds into sMs-200. I’m upgrading to a Curious USB cable and also considering the Curious USB storage to PC cable made for USB 3 (Mac Mini).
My question to SMS-200 experts is : is it worth considering usIng the USB on the back on the SMS for the music library , especially with an Curious USB storage cable?
It is hard to A/B because the Curious storage cable will not work on both devices. Any thoughts please on sonic pros & cons of the direct music library (using Roon) into back of SMS-200 over a network connection. I shifted from NAS storage to SSD when I upgraded my Mac Mini (Room lightning fast now)
