I selected the only option I saw, I do not know the answer...

I use the bridge II with my ps audio ds sr dac. Usb is flawed, use either Ethernet or i2s to a dac for best sound. Using Ethernet, your dac becomes an endpoint.
You also don’t need a server/streamer in your audio room, keep the server in a different room.
I used Audirvana for years, then went to Roon the last couple of years. I have heard the new audirvana MIGHT be a little bit better sounding than roon, but I have 6 Roon endpoints in my house, and the last I saw of audirvana’s interface, Roon is far superior
Just received and set up the Node 2i. So far, love it! It's great having everything in one place, the interface isn't bad and it sounds pretty good to me.
Especially happy that it streams Deezer since I couldn't send their stream to my Raspberry Pi.
Look forward to researching some of the upgrades available for the Node 2i.
Congratulations! I just switched over from analog to digital streaming a few months ago (good timing, that). I dipped my toes in the water with a Bluesound Node 2i, using only Qobuz, and enjoyed it immensely. I upgraded to the PowerNode 2i because we planned to have the streamer in the living room of our new place and my wife was happier with the smaller footprint. For such a small unit, and a low price point, both the Node 2i and PowerNode 2i are a phenomenal value and a great intro to streaming. BTW, if you are into home theater, the PowerNode 2i has HDMI inputs.
I communicated with the international service supervisor of Innuos and he said they can add Deezer to be available on my device. I did a demo of a mini mk III and loved it! Its sound is outstanding . I have Deezer which I want to keep. If you want a roon core server it will do that too along with burning up to 1TB of CD's. I was sold once he said I could have my Dezzer.
