I have a set of LS50W in my kitchen. I have had this hooked to an Apple TV with optical out into the LS50W. I could access the speakers from a number of apps as well as iTunes etc… I am now using Roon, just getting into it with the Nucleus + as my core. I never had updated the firmware on the LS50W since new. Are these able to run as a roon endpoint? Would I for example be able to play to an Apple TV zone and the LS50W at the same time? I am wondering really do I need the Apple TV with optical out or is what I want available built in to the LS50W? It’s a bit clunky having to have the Apple TV hooked up to the LS50W but it does work and sounds to me much better than the bluetooth.
Also wanted to mention I have other zones, a bedroom, patio and shop all with Apple TVs. I was able to play all at once or one at a time via itunes or airfoil for other apps if needed.
