External streamer to KEF LS50 Wireless?

168 viewsStreaming

Hello!

My HiFi system:

KEF LS50 Wireless

REL S3 SHO subwoofer

Cables/Interconnect: Nordost Frey 2 powercord > Quantum QB4, and Nordost Blue Heaven powercords to speakers and sub. Nordost Heimdall 2 USB and Heimdall 2 Ethernet cable between speakers.

Currently, I stream Tidal HiFi from My iMac (which is connected via WI-FI)via USB to the LS50 Wireless. My experience is, that this sounds way better than streaming directly to the speakers.

QUESTION:  Can I make the sound quality even better to get a dedicated streamer? I have been recommended Roon Nucleus via USB to speakers, But Will I expect better sound quality? Or Will a dedicated streamer via stereo interconnects to the speakers be even better, because I Will then use the DAC in the streamer instead of the LS50W internal DAC, if I have understood this right?

Kind Regards

Olle, Sweden

Olle,

Keep in mind that the RCA analog inputs on the LS50W run through an ADC process. You’ll want to avoid that if it all possible by using a digital input, preferably USB or Ethernet.
