Are there any gains on sound quality if i.e. Roon is bypassed?
Roon uses a different protocol to stream music from the Core to the Client when compare to UPNP. Also the additional function of the LUMIN systems increases the load of the processors, additional loading means more noise may be generated. Be experimental and share with us your findings!

Hmmm, interesting and makes sense. Once we'll have our hands on one of Lumin devices, we will It's difficult to discard Roon once one gets used to it!

Is not a matter of choice I think, as Lumin support both all at the same time on the fly. So customers get to choose when to use RAAT( ROON ) or UPNP to stream their music. Which model are you getting ?
