Thanks @upshift     
Neat "Tweaks" to improve the SQ of your streamed music!!!
@upshift and @dinov sounds a way to go. Do your optical cables come with RJ45 interconnects? I assume that is required to go into my streamer, router and Lan Silencer.   
Digital Preamp with USB-input but without a DAC?
My speakers are 3,000 $ active speakers from Buchart and my input is an Innuos streamer, so this is a decent setup - and I like it. And yes, they do have a DAC built in. However, I realised that my Platin Hub that connects the streamer and the sp... 
Ethernet Switch- what's the point?
There is an interesting Live Blind Test Switches on YouTube:  The two guys don't agree: on prefers and expensive audiophile switch and the other a standard pretty cheap switch.  I was contemplating buy... 
Connecting a streamer via an Ethernet cable
I have a Naim Muso Qb which is all-in-one. It runs 96khz in wireless and 192 wired. So wired matters.   
what is the advantage of having a Roon core that's not on your computer?
I have Roon running on an Innuos server, which is cable-connected to my DAC and then into my amplifier. I enjoy that it is located in my rack. For Roon I like it can be controlled from my phone that acts as remote. I like the SQ a lot. 
Portable speakers around 300K?
Shoot. Sorry. 300$ or €.  
spend on the streamer or on the DAC ?
My local high end dealer have put multiple systems together for shows and I noticed the budget allocation roughly was 40% streamer and 60% DAC. Personally I use the Innuos Mini running Roon/Tidal into RME ADI-2 DAC and I am very pleased.I have bee... 
What's the best non-DAC streamer?
+1 for Innuos. I have the mini and runs Tidal and Roon on it. Very satisfied.  
Fairly new to streaming. Where to start?
I would recommend separate streamer and DAC. Regarding streamer I would first of all select one, where your favourite streaming services is embedded (Tidal, Spotify, etc). Secondly, I would vouch for using Roon. I enjoy the music metadata and musi... 
My system is where I want it be and it sounds awesome...
Good for you. However, I would replace the Mac with an Innuos.  
Has anyone heard the new PS Audio Strata, Integrated Amp/DAC/streamer?
Both are interesting for different purposes. Paul speaks a little about the Strata in this youtube. For Strata I will be looking forward to understand if it will be Roon Ready at some point and to wha... 
Do I really need a separate Roon Core (computer) to use Roon Software?
I run Roon on my Innuos streamer. Tidal run through Roon. Output to DAC and onwards to integrated ampl. IPhone as remote controller. Works perfect.  
Speakers Don’t Matter As Much As We Think They Do?
I attended a show some month back where a dealer had three different setups (15K, 30K and 50K). In all three the speakers where around 40 - 50%. So he at least shared the view that speakers are most important.  
Streamer v DAC - which is more important?
Adding a view on user interface. Agree many Apps are bad and native Tidal is much better. However, I started using Roon and that is nice interface and lots of additional information. Tidal is embedded into Roon.
