I’ve managed to narrow down the problem a little bit. My system is set up as follows:
I have a Synology DS1511 NAS that stores all my music. I run Roon on a Windows 10 PC and everything in my setup is connected by Ethernet cable to a switch which is connected to my router.
I have two devices in my network; a MicroRendu running on my main system and an Auralic Aries connected to an Ayre Codex DAC/Headphone amp. The main system with the MicroRendu is working fine but the Aries/Codex system stopped working a few days ago. I’ve tried to do a little bit of troubleshooting to refine the issue.
First I tried using a different DAC connected to the Aries. Same problem. Then I connected my Codex to a PC running JRiver and it worked fine. The problem is not with the Codex.
I also tried connecting my Codex directly to the PC running the Roon core with a USB cable but I haven’t been able to get this to work. I’ve never tried to use Roon this way before. Can you explain how to setup Roon with a DAC connected directly to the core? If I can get this to work I think I can eliminate Roon as the source of the problem.
I suspect the problem is related to the Aries but I powered everything down and ran the Aries setup routine again. It should be working but the problem persists.
