Description of Issue

So, I’m not sure all the information above was necessary, but I’m not a frequent poster and the template requested all that information.

Long story short: all the Roon Remote apps on my Android DAPs are showing that they are incompatible with my Roon Core.


  • FiiO M17 DAP
  • FiiO M11 LTD DAP
  • iBasso DX240 DAP
  • iBasso DX320 DAP

This is not isolated to one DAP. I have 4 DAPs and I am experiencing the same problem on all 4. As of right now, I’m unable to access the Roon Remote app from anything running Android. I have a Galaxy Fold Z (I think it’s called) lying around that I can also try out.

Please note these DAPs are all running different versions of Android as well (Android 9, 10, and 11). Is this a known issue that others are experiencing? Please see attached screenshot.

Roon ARC, holy buckets, is working very well with my DAPs. I am very pleased to see that I am getting bit-perfect playback via all 5 of my external USB DACs. All my local hi-res PCM and DSD files finally show as “lossless” and my local lossy-MQA files are unfolding. Same goes for streaming these file types (lossless and completely unfolding). Wow. Long time coming for that. I’m thrilled.

My iPhone, as always, is working well and enjoying teatime with Roon. I am, however, excited my DAPs might be catching up to my iPhone in terms of bit-perfect → USB DAC functionality like the iPhone.

You seem to have installed the earlyaccess version on the phone but the Rock is still on the production version. This doesn’t work, all parts of Roon must be on the same update channel, either earlyaccess or production. See here for how to move your Rock to earlyaccess or your phone back to production:

Oh, goodness. How simple a solution….

Thank you very much.
