Auralic Aries Roon visibility is intermittent with Synology Roon core


I’m using a Synology server with Roon.

My Aries is using a wired network connection with a USB output channel, Firmware version 3.3

It is working fine using Lightning DS version 3.1

Roon is enabled, USB is connected and active, I’ve rebooted multiple times, cycled between inputs etc.

The Aries Roon visibility comes and goes. It was visible yesterday but invisible before that. It is now invisible again.

I did have more consistent visibility when Roon was running on a PC as the Roon core so it might be related to the Synology Roon core.


I restarted the Synology server and now the Aries appears as a Roon target device.
