DIY Roon Core OS thread

I have just created a thread on the DCHFG forum for the discussion of building your own Roon Labs music library and streaming audio system. My introductory post gives some background history of how we got here and then introduces the Roon system. My next post will begin a discussion on how I built my own Roon Core OS server and incorporated it into to my home network of streaming players.

If you own more than a couple hundred CDs, I think you owe it to yourself to take a look at the Roon system that I guarantee will unlock more value from your collection than you may have thought.

The Incredible Egg Speaker

DCHFG’s very own Thomas Perazella debuted his “incredible egg speaker” system at last year’s Captial Audiofest where many listeners were awe struck including Stereophile’s Herb Reichert.

Tom now pulls back the veil to describe how he created this passion project in the latest issue of audioXpress magazine on newsstands now. This is probably the DIY project of the year and it does not disappoint.

DCHFG’s Paul Elliot also provided the cover shot for the article.

If you have had any doubts about joining DCHFG, you will find there is a very high caliber of audio enthusiasts like Tom and Paul that you will enjoy getting to know. Join now!
