Description Of Issue

Hi everybody,

I wish use my Bluesound materials with Airplay.

They appears in Roon, but when I change the volume in the speaker (with buttons), the volume does not change in Roon.
If I use my HomePod Mini, it works. The volume buttons are sync with Roon.
If I stream directly my music from my iPhone to Bluesound, the volume buttons with physical buttons on Flex 2i and Node 2i are sync.

I deduced the problem comes from Roon.

Does it possible to sync the volume of Bluesound Airplay in Roon ?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Will7190

Can you share some screenshots of what you’re seeing as well as Device Setup in Roon? Thanks!

The Roon volume when I start music, so 18/100 :

I pushed the volume up button on my Bluesound speaker, the volume up really :

The Roon volume after pushed, 18/100 again :

When I do the same thing with my HomePod Mini, the volume change in Roon.

The configuration of my Bluesound device (exactly the same as my HomePod Mini) :
