BluOS versus Roon library question
It's not a Vault thing. I already have my CDs ripped and I can attach them to a Node via USB storage. The question is about my music collection, which Roon calls my Library. It shows me all my music, whether it's my ripped CDs or the Tidal albums ... 
SQ : Anthem receiver vs. processor
Sorry to hear about your work situation. I just wanted to throw out there that if you are using a 2.1 setup for music, keep that subwoofer connection in mind. If it's connected to the receiver you end up buying, it won't be part of your stereo set... 
Advice Needed: Bluesound Node vs Vault
Thanks big_greg, I was thinking sort of along those same lines. I've already ripped some of my CDs a couple years ago. Not a ton, but maybe around 40 or 50. I already went through the process on my PC to get the album art and they are all neatly a... 
Advice Needed: Bluesound Node vs Vault

Prepro into a Preamp into an Amp??

HDMI vs 5.1 analog connection

Integrated used as Preamp?

Integrated used as Preamp?
Rar1 - what do you mean about not all A3s having a preamp out? Are you saying there are multiple versions of the A3? According to the MF website, the A3, A300, A3.2, and A308 integrateds all have preouts. 
Integrated used as Preamp?
Thanks for the feedback thus far. To answer some of the questions...It doesn't have to be a MF integrated/preamp... I have just been looking at one to mate with my MF A308CR power amp. What I need is a good 2-channel preamp, because my system curr...
