Its also required for sound EQ (if you care to use it), room correction features, and several others that require a bit of processing grunt.
Rune, Simon, have you any experience of i5 or i7 for all the different processing options? If I'm going down the Roon route I may as well get it right first time. I'd rather not spend the extra on an i7 if I can avoid it, but I'd also like to future proof the investment should I start to use more of the processing-heavy options.
I have not tried any processing options. I read and i7 is required on that front if you want to do lots of processing for multi room at the same time, I dont need that
