The review is here :
https://twitteringmachines.com/review-totaldac-d1-streamer/

The conclusion is :
" ... If the d1-streamer is within your reach, grab it."
Thank you CKKeung,
This is the review if the d1-streamer, with digital outputs.
Currently Michael Lavorgna is testing a d1-tube DAC equipped with the streamer option, so it is a DAC (with analog output) with the same streaming functionalities. The result is not yet released.

Is this device Roon Core and Endpoint? Or do I need another PC in the house running Roon?

Hello,
The d1-tube DAC with the streamer option is RoonReady, it means it is a Roon end point. It sounds better this way, when the core and the end point are separated.

So, it's an all-in-one box solution, no need to be running Roon separately? I'm looking for one-box solutions, ie Lumin, Limtree, Linn, but none are Roon Endpoint. I just want the simplicity of a single box, no need for Roon having to be run separately, no endless arguments on USB, ABS/EBU etc btwn streamer and dac, need for only a single pwr cord, set of footers etc, basically a one-stop shop option. The fact that TD is revered for having an analog sensibility also appeals greatly.

It is a RoonReady endpoint device, it means that Roon Core is running separately (in a Totaldac d1-player or in a computer for example), and this is the way you get the best sound.

A computer with embedded sound card would be a fully one box solution to run Roon and have analog outputs, but it would not be the best sounding solution.

I'm interested in the D1-Direct with onboard streaming option.
Is there a difference in quality between the all in one D1-Direct+streamer and D1-Direct and separate D1-streamer ?
Thanks.
