Just curious since my only DAC is the MCD500 and no USB input available.

Thanks

Busy week at work. I will do more listening during the weekend (I hope)...

More Silenzio questions.

> Does the Silenzio still use Windows 7 or is Windows 10 now the operating system?
> Does the Silenzio remain connected to the Internet, and if so does it require Internet security software to protect from virus attacks, etc.?
> Does the Silenzio control the NAS hard drives to shut down when not being accessed?

Gen 3 is on Win10 Pro.

Yes. You can install whatever you'd like, but it is "low-risk" since your outbound connectivity is typically to very trusted sources; the stock Windows Defender is usually more than adequate.

No. That is set within the NAS OS, which I set at 1 hr unless client requests a different (or no) hibernate time.

Dan, I am under the impression you like Sonos very much. I do too. With the Silenzio, I get to listen to superb quality when I want to sit down and enjoy some critical listening, but at the same time I kept and use Sonos for my background music (while in the kitchen, outside by the pool, etc) in the same system. Best of both worlds
With the set up you have, specially your recording studio, I cannot imagine the amount of benefits you will get from SilenZio, and how good it will sound :thumbs:

Happy Listening
