When you are playing to the “dcs” zone in Roon, are you hearing output from the dCS Debussy DAC? If this is the case, what you are seeing in Audio Midi is the operating system changing its default output because Roon has taken exclusive control of the dCS Debussy device. This is expected behavior.
When you say that the output is SonicStream, does this mean that you are not getting audio output from the dCS, or that the speaker icon is moved to SonicStream in Audio Midi settings? If it’s the latter, this is to be expected, the speaker icon only reflects the active “System Output” and when the dCS is in exclusive mode it is no longer tied to the Sytem Output.
When S Stream is in the output, I do get audio. This is new however. I’ve always seen the output going to the dCS.
Is it because I am in exclusive mode"
Very confusing. Why, all of a sudden, is S Studio my output?thx
