STi5 as Roon Core - Brendan - 23/11/2017
I purchased the Sonic Transporter to use as a Roon Core after some excellent advice from Martin. I am very happy with the performance of the STi5 and would highly recommend it. The advice and aftersales service from Martin was much appreciated and he is a real pleasure to deal with, Brendan
