Well this is my first Post on Roon Community, so be gentle!
I am in process of “trialling” Roon with my Devialet D1000Pro and AIR 3.0.4. It has been running for a full day and a bit and so far no hiccups at all (I am touching a piece of wood as I make this pronouncement!). I originally downloaded Roon to help me demo a dCS Network Bridge which has now been collected (oh dear) - more on that experience later, as this is about AIR and Roon integration with my Devialet.
I am currently running Roon Core on my home, Windows 10, PC and controlling the music using Roon Remote on an Android Tablet (Samsung Tab S). I have given Roon control over AIR and all works well. I have tried streaming a wide range of music, in a variety of forms, both 16 and 24bit - from “redbook” ripped CDs, through 96Khz, 192KHz, to DSD 64 - and all play fine. I have checked the display on the Devialet and all show the correct resolution figure being played, so Roon is handling that fine. My music is held on a 2TB, USB 3.0, WD My Book Essential, so nothing fancy, plugged into a spare USB port on my Computer.
I am fully Ethernet connected from my Hub (a Virgin Media Superhub - actually nothing really super about it at all!) to a TP 8way switch, then to my Devialet - no fancy Ethernet cables in Network, but to cat 6 level. From the switch to Devialet I use an Audioquest “Forest” cable, so again, nothing esoteric!
I must add that the PC has seen some heavy routine work by both myself and my wife, including a lot of Printer use, and during that time there has not been the hint of a glitch, stutter, or drop out (again I am touching the wood!) from the system.
My usual system is a Wyred4Sound Music Server > USB > Devialet. and I must admit that Roon with AIR compares in SQ more than favourably with that system. I will continue to use Roon over the next few days and if the system continues to behave then I can see myself converting from Roon Trial to Full Roon membership! Will continue to experiment with the settings and learn what they do - maybe back for help and guidance from those more knowledgeable than me in the use of Roon, but so far so good!
I have read many horror stories about AIR on the Devialet Chat Forum, but I must admit that I have not experienced any issues with any of the latest AIR versions, and certainly not with 3.0.4. But that use has previously been limited to playing iTunes using the iTunes Remote I my ancient iPad (so ancient I could not download the Roon Remote on it - hence use of Samsung!) so the chance to try streaming more HiRes material using AIR has been a welcome experience.
Will keep you posted if things change.
