Almost embarrassed to ask, but...
I stream to my Oppo 205 using a lap top- USB -Roon/Tidal-into a tube preamp then into a solid state amp and it really enjoy the music!  I’ve tried the Oppo 205 direct into the amp but there is something about the tube preamp that is more statisfying.

Linking XBOX ONE S to Google Home for Voice Command
Sorry I dont know the answer but I was wondering what Smart Home is?  I have a Vintage Home, built in 1925.  Should I be posting any questions for that in Vintage?

DSD converted to PCM vs Original PCM
My Oppo 205 allows me to switch from DSD to PCM on the fly.  I think DSD is smoother more vinyl like, just as DSD was advertised when it was introduced years ago. 
Tidal & Roon
I’m new to streaming music and am thoroughly enjoying Roon/Tidal through my Oppo 205.  All hooked up with Ethernet.  Although I’m learning everyday I hope all my settings are set for the best sound (DSD etc) possible. Best “investment” I have made...
