Connecting older Naim to play HiRes files from NAS

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

iMac running Catalina 10.15.7, Roon 1.8, Ethernet-wired
Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

Synology RT2600ac router ethernet-wired to Synology NAS DS212J

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Naim SuperUniti, Ethernet and Apple Airport Express connected

Description Of Issue

How can I configure my system to enable Roon to play my NAS-hosted library through the Naim’s ethernet connection rather than over Airplay via the Airport Express? I want to get maximum benefit of my HiRes music library without it being down-sampled by Airplay. I will upgrade to a Roon Ready Naim at some point but need a solution in the interim.
Many thanks,

There is an entire thread on this here SonoreUPnP Bridge (beta)
and rooUPnP: Finally a Roon Extension for UPnP Streamers

Also covered extensively in the Naim Community Forum, as there a number of options - see Cheap way to enable Roon streamig to older NAIM streamers - #35 by simon.pepper - Streaming Audio - Naim Audio - Community


Hey @Chris_Trower,

A very belated welcome to the Roon community :wave:

Thanks for reaching out to find out more about how to use Roon with your setup. Thanks to @simon_pepper, valuable info was brought up. Did any of it work for you?

@simon_pepper thanks :pray:
