iFi Bridge - A UPnP / DLNA app solution for playback on Roon

Hi Henry,

Yes, this is correct. Let us know how you get on!

Kind regards,
Jake

Hi @Jesus_Rodriguez

Thanks!

Hey @CrystalGipsy

:partying_face: Here’s to a command-line free UPnP Bridge! :champagne:

Does this application only work with iFi UPnP hardware?

Hi @Jesus_Rodriguez

It is not limited to iFi products but we cannot guarantee it will work with every UPnP device!

Good job with your products! :smiley:

Kind regards,
Jake

Have you tried this solution?

Doesn’t work with DOS1 but maybe with DOS2?

No I haven’t. Windows-only apparently and I am Mac-only. I’ll just use AirPlay until Devialet implements RAAT. I’m liking DOS 2 however. Seems stable, remote is working and I am delighted to be rid of the Dialog. Feels like it’s given my Phantoms a new lease of life.

Plus this software is Windows based, so it would require a Windows platform to be powered-on to provide the UPnP Bridge. I don’t want a noisy Windows machine in the playback path.

IMO this type of software is better running on a dedicated appliance or part of the server infrastructure. Given I use a NUC running Roon’s ROCK with my library on a NAS, a server based implementation is not possible, so dedicated appliance it is - which for me is a UltraRendu with UltraCap LPS 1 to run the SonoreUPnP Bridge to feed my Naim NDS network player.

I hope you use the Ultarendu for more than just the upnp bridge?

I have the option with an XMOS U8 USB to S/PDIF convertor into the Digital input of the NDS, but frankly it does perform as well as the SonoreUPnP bridge path.

There are better USB to S/PDIF convertors.

But if you remember, I only added this playback route when the SonoreUPnP Bridge was not operating well enough to be my primary Roon route - now that I have the SonoreUPnP Bridge working perfectly, and without any issue, the XMOS U8 convertor is not used, and there is no need to invest in a
replacement.

Thanks,
Simon.

Yes I understand. If any part of your comment was about sound quality then the direct input should be better than that specific converter. If any part of your comment was about functionality both perform the same function via different inputs.

Anyone get this working with phantom reactors or phantoms updated to DOS 2?

I’ve managed to successfully get ifi bridge working with roon and my devialet phantom reactors. Roon now sees them as squeezeboxes…but audio tops out @ 24bit / 48 max. No options in the advanced options for higher resolution. Strange as the phantoms support 24 / 192. Any thoughts??

Hi @SCOTT_MITCHELL1

Thanks for your message, I will take a look into this matter and get back to you.

Kind regards,
Jake

Hi @SCOTT_MITCHELL1

I have tested this on our Pro iDSD and I was able to get 192/24 no problem, Are you trying to play PCM or MQA?

Thanks
Jake

Playing throught roon via the ifi bridge to the devialet phantoms Flac 24/ 192 files are downsampled to 24/48. This is shown in the play path on roon but no DSP settings are doing this? Mqa just passes though as the phantoms are not mqa licensed.

The default settings for the ‘squeezeupnpbrdige’ is 48,000 KHz.
If you can find a config.xml file, there is an entry to change this up to 192000

I have the Bridge deployed to a RPi2, as a backup to the SonoreUPnP Bridge, which is GUI driven on the SonicOrbiterOS platform.

Just tried this, but it’s still no good, 48khz is the highest quality. Config XML resets back everytime
