  1. WIRED: Sotm sms-200 (v 0.4.18) with Mytek Brooklyn DAC+
  2. WIRELESS: Macbook Pro 16 -> SMSL SU8 DAC

Description Of Issue
I have a Desktop zone, created for my Macbook/SMSL Dac setup. I use my headphones on that one, hences there are several presets for EQ, Convolution, Crossfeed, etc associated.
Everytime I open Roon, after not using it from previous day, the Desktop zone does not exists and I need to create it again, Enable the SMSL Dac, confirm Audio devices setup (exclusive mode, DSD strategy, MQA, Volume control, etc).
The other zones work fine, no issue.


Hi @Maximiliano_Doweck,

Can you please share a screenshot of what the audio device you need to re-create looks like?

Do you have any kind of deep freeze programs on the Macbook that the SMSL is connected to (programs that the system to a specified state on startup)?
