Description of Issue

Everything was working fine until last night. I was listening through Ifi hip-DAC when Roon shut down mid-song. Since then, if that DAC is connected, Roon shuts down the second I select it as my audio zone. I tried disabling the device and setting it back up again, but this happens every single time.

Hey @Steve_Ackerman,

We’re so sorry to hear about this :pensive: . Clearly, it makes it impossible to actually listen to music…

If this is still an issue, would you please check for a firmware update for your iFi DAC? After that, regardless if there is one or not, could you please turn it off, unplug it for a few minutes and then try connecting it again to Roon.

Does that help?
