Hqplayer to node2 help

hi ive got hqplayer working with roon core i7 6700k 1080 ,the problem i have is trying to get hqplayer working from my pc to my node2 over network,does hqplayer work like this or would i have run a optical cable from pc to node2

HQPlayer can only play over the network to a device running Network Audio Daemon software provided by Signalyst, often referred to as an NAA or Network Audio Adapter. In the case of the node2 you’d have to connect your HQPlayer machine directly via optical, or add another device.
