Yes. True. But only Roon sees this as an output…and then what?
The signal had to go through the Processor as well. In the processor i have to be able to select Roon again. And that’s the problem.
I can only select my Mac as audio device and my tv.
Thanks! I have seen several videos installing Dirac, but no Roon indeed.
I have asked Dirac in an email if the setup I want was possible.
This was their answer;

thanks for your interest in Dirac Live.
If your Mac is the only source of music you can use the standalone version of Dirac Live… by using its virtual audio card you’ll be able to get a systemwide correction of all audio from your Mac, including Roon.
You can get a 14 day free trial here:
Looks to me there isn’t a problem. And yes, of have sees some Roon Community posts about Roon and Dirac, but they use an Wasabi plugin for windows. I cannot find such a thing for Mac
You can’t use it to a network end point only a usb attached DAC. I think your misunderstanding how this would work it can only playout from the macs audio outputs this would normally by via USB attached DAC. You cannot use it to use Dirac on a network end point.
Maybe. But if I’m asking of Dirac will work in my setup, and I say that my setup is:
-Mac with Roon
-Linn network player.
And I get this answer:
“ If your Mac is the only source of music you can use the standalone version of Dirac Live… by using its virtual audio card you’ll be able to get a systemwide correction of all audio from your Mac, including Roon.
Sow, they say it wil work in this setup. End of story.
But they didn’t tell me how? And I want an answer to that from them.
Yes, I think so too. It cannot be done in my setup.
I’m a bit ■■■■■■ though! If Dirac says it’s no problem and I invest a lot of time and frustrations to let it work… and then too figure out it can’t be done.
Other question. Why can’t I write here that I’m angry?? (I other words) It’s all flowers and happiness over here?
They likely assumed you’re using the Linn as a DAC not a network streamer. It would work in that scenario if you were using it connected via a USB input. Their response mentions nothing of network just Mac systemwide correction which is correct. I feel this is more a communication issue than them deliberately misselling.
Not exactly sure where this is coming from…??
You can write that your angry, but, not everyone will respond well to “angry” sounding posts.
Maybe if you explicitly say “I am angry at the vendor for XXX” or “I am frustrated with XXX” and not just write a post that “sounds” angry and looks like misdirected hostility? Not a lot of people will want to help someone that is hostile and confrontational, especially since we are all just unpaid volunteers and fellow users just trying to help. Not saying you did any of this just giving examples. It is also very hard to communicate feelings and intent in text format…as you probably know.
The old “catch more flies with honey than vinegar” adage comes in to play here.
P.S. It also does not help that your “anger” is not at/with Roon, per se, but with a product that is not related to the main function of Roon, correct? It’s all in how you present it…
