Description of Issue
I use Argon Audio Solo as a streamer and it shows up in Roon as “Roon Ready” and I’ve used that as my primary way of playing tracks. After a few days it disappears and the only option that is left Is the “Argon Audio AirPlay” which continues to work. When I reset the Argon Audio Solo to factory settings it’s back as “Roon Ready” but after a couple of days it disappears again.
Do you use live radio, by any chance?
Argon Audio is aware of a problem with the Solo and is actively working on it.
Please contact Argon Audio per Mail, so that they are aware of this problem, too.
Thanks for the reply, no I don’t use live radio at all. I don’t have Tidal or any streaming service either btw. Just files on my Synology server.
I will contact Argon audio too, thanks for the tip.
My apologies for the slow response. We’ve been doing our best to get caught up and we’re almost there.
I have sent a request for diagnostics logging that will return to me once you bring the core back online. I want to check and see what Roon thinks is happening when this happens. That said, I want to explore a few of other options too:
- A RAAT refresh. I’m hoping something here is corrupted and is the source of the issue.
You can generate a new RAATServer instance on your device by following these instructions, but please be aware that this will reset your Roon Settings → Audio Tab to factory settings and I would advise making a backup of any custom DSP settings you have:
- Create a Backup of your current Roon database
- Exit out of Roon
- Navigate to your Roon’s Database Location
- Find the folder that says “RAATServer”
- Rename the “RAATServer” folder to “RAATServer_old”
- Restart the Roon App to generate a new RAATServer folder
Try disabling sleep for your Mac. If for nothing else, to see if the devices are being lost as a result of sleeping.
If using Time Machine, please either disable or ensure you’re excluding Roon.
