The ARCE is now fully burnt in and connected to the Terminator II via USB and clock output running as a Roon end point.
My old streamer was a SOTM Ultra Neo and Ultra USB reclocker power by Linear Power Supplies.
The ARCE is far superior to the SOTM delivering a thicker / richer sound, better texture, soundstage and dynamics. My wife also notices! Glad to get rid of the multiple LPS units and boxes.
At this price point, as a Roon end point, it’s a no brainer. If you are using the Terminator II, the clock inputs, this is a great choice.
The only downside I see is that the setup is too fiddly with too many buttons. You need to simplify with either a web interface or easier controls.
The unit needs at least 200 hours to open up and deliver best SQ.
I would recommend making a streamer in the 3K price point — I will buy it.
One more winner from Denafrips!
