before get rid of your Linn KDS, check out the products from Sonore at http://www.sonore.us

Their SonicOrbiter 2.5 software allows us to use Roon with our Linn DS players and it is on all of their ethernet connected renderers.

You can either check out their forum at Computer Audiophile to get questions answered or go to https://www.smallgreencomputer.com and email Andrew. He sells Sonore stuff and can answer your questions.

Basically, all you need is the cheapest product Sonore makes, pop it into your network and Roon can use it to render to your KDS.

Andrew used to make a small computer called the UPNP Bridge and I own one. It has the SonicOrbiter software on it and Roon sees it as a Logitech Sqeezebox on my LAN and I play Roon through my KDSM and it sounds great.

Makes a lot mo' sense then ditching the KDS for Lumin IMO.

Certainly not me. I do not see Lumin or Roon as particularly innovative. In any case I’m far more interested in music than technology. Important thing is find an album or track I wish to play: my interest in reading is not great when compared with listening to music.

It would be good if Linn could support Roon for those who like it as long as there’s no inherent cost to those who don’t. However, there are other feature enhancements I’d prefer such as Space Optimised data on S/PDIF output.
