Description of Issue

Is it possible to connect my ARC DSPRE to my Roon Nucleus via USB? From my understanding ARC requires a driver download. I am currently using my Lumin D1 as a streamer, thus bypassing the DAC in the D1 as I find the DAC in my DSPRE to sound more natural. I’d like to eliminate using the D1 altogether if I can simply connect my Nucleus to the ARC DSPRE. The DSPRE uses the same drivers as the ARC DAC8 if that’s helpful.


You cannot load drivers on a Nucleus. Otherwise, just try it out.
