So I’m using a Topping D50s and Roon and my Mac keep fighting with it, and Roon keeps losing communication with it. I’m tired of rebooting, and want to just replace it already. Any reccomendations? Bonus points for DACs that show the bitrate but I guess that’s just me.
Not sure why. Power is steady–it’s always on. For some reason, though, the D50s randomly loses communication with Roon, and the only solution is a reboot. So, not sure if any other DAC would be different but I’m willing to try!
Yes, so if you set Roon to play an audio source exclusively then it will take full control of that audio port and will not pass-through other audio. This is for audio performance, and I definitely notice a difference with it turned on.
The issue you are having sounds like a glitch in the matrix But seriously, it sounds like it’s either a port on the board issue (whatever USB port you use, try using a different one if possible). Or it could be a device issue with the USB cord.
Are you able to test this DAC on something other than the MacBook?
