I’m a retired network products engineer, so I’m somewhat tech savvy.
I’m used to macs, so I expect things to work pretty much the way you think they should - NOT TRUE for Roon. I can’t find a simple set of instructions for setting up my configuration, so I’m just stumbling around.
I’ve successful loaded the core on my iMac 27" and it found my iTunes music files. I love the interface.
I play my music from a mac mini connected to my entertainment center. It has an external DAC that still works fine with iTunes. I can’t seem to get things going on the mini.
I don’t know whether to install Roon or Bridge on the mini, but I can’t seem to get Bridge to go - when installed it just flashes with no progress. So I installed Roon, and it found the core and my library - that’s cool. But it does not connect to the DAC. When I try to play music on the mini, music starts to play on the core machine. I can hear faint sound on the mini but no music.
Look at the picture again.
The three little horizontal lines top left is the menu selection.
You access it via menu: settings:audio.
You can see various audio zones on your network and can enable and disable them.
Where the big blue enable is right next to an audio zone.
