Got an email from Roon this morning saying that Dragonfly Cobalt was now “Roon-tested” so “you can quickly turn your phone . . . into a hi-res endpoint.”
Now I already knew that Roon recognized the Dragonfly as an endpoint when I plugged it into my Mac; it creates a zone complete with picture and version number.
But when I plugged the Dragonfly into my iPhone, nothing like that happened. If I play through the phone with the Dragonfly connected, the signal path does show lossless output via a USB device attached to the phone, but there is no mention of the Dragonfly.
Should I care? I guess if I’m really getting lossless output, I don’t care. But I always like to see those little pictures of whatever I’m playing through. Any ideas?
