I have a Pi doing some other things in the same rack as my AV receiver. Is it possible to use it an end point without having to run Roopiee?
You can install the same package ropieee uses manually:
It’s the roon bridge you want, not the server.
I have Roon running on my Raspberry PI using HiFiBerry OS. HiFiBerry is certified Roon Ready. I have a HiFiBerry DAC board intstalled. Don’t know if HiFiBerry OS will run on a Raspberry without that extension card. But you can try or extend your rasberry with a hifiberry dac or digi+
Ok, sorry. Overlooked that you probably don’t want to replace your OS. Then installing Roon Bridge is the better option…
I used to run Roon on a the RPi with the Allo Katana V1.2 (with Isolator). Worked very well. Then I switched to VM to have bit more power (searching, filtering…)
Awesome, that’s exactly what I was after. Thanks so much!
Funny enough I plan to run a HiFiBerry DigiPro 2 optical output HAT too. I love their hardware! I just have some other linux’y things running on this Pi and it’s going in my AV rack so I thought it’d be great to make a Roon endpoint while I’m at it.
