Bluesound vs SOtM


I am a vinyl guy but after living with the Chromecast audio for a few years I finally bought a DAC. The DAC is an Ayre Codex currently fed by a MacBook Air 2011, directly connected via USB. It sounds a bit harsh and flat, although with plenty of detail and great body in the lower frequencies.

I have therefore decided to feed the fact with a streamer instead. My question is this: Has anyone substantial experience comparing Bluesound Node 2 with a SOtM SMS 200 (with the SPS 500 power supply) in a revealing system?

Again, my system is very revealing so even subtle differences between the two will be clear.

I currently use only TIDAL and YouTube but I am interested in differences in hardware of the streaming that affect all uses.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience,
Fred

Why do you need Roon?  You don’t necessarily need it to stream Tidal.  You could always get Roon later. One option is buy the Bluesound from Crutchfield and give it an audition.  Their return policy is excellent.  If you don’t like the bluesound return it and try the SOtM. 
Thanks so much again for advice
Lumin is a free app I use with the SMS-200. Tidal streaming works well with it. I'll try Roon after a computer & iPad upgrade, but Lumin does the job. Another free app that can be used is called kazoo I believe.
