Description of Issue
The Belkin soundform connect device is new to market as a usb-c powered airplay 2 device. I have successfully connected to same network but does not show up as an endpoint on Roon under audio. I have performed a reboot of the Rock, server and tried adding on Mac, iPad and iPhone but does not work with any.
While it is Airplay 2 I thought they were backward compatible with airplay, could there be a tweak I need to make so it shows up in Roon?
The clue is in it being Airplay2. Roon doesn’t support Airplay 2 only legacy Airplay, does this device support legact Airplay? I would check with Belkin they may only have made it support Airplay 2.
Yes - just spoke with Belkin and not Airplay backwards compatible only Airplay 2- so going straight back, as I have little need for Airplay 2 with Roon fully supporting Airplay and doing a good job of it too.
Thanks for your help.

Continuing the discussion from Belkin Soundform Connect not being found in Roon audio setting:
Apologies for reviving an old thread, but I have the Belkin Soundform Connect, and whilst it is an airplay 2 device, it does appear to fallback to Airplay, either way, it works.
Not a problem, thank you for the report. We’ll follow up shortly once we’ve investigated diagnostics.
Did you have to do any special configurations to find it on Roon?
Confirmed that works perfectly well! You just have to upgrade the FW using the Form app on an IOS device. (it does not work on Android devices!)
Obsolete speaker brought back to life!!!
