Description of Issue

Hi, I currently have a 14-day Roon trial and a 30-day trial of HQPlayer. I’m trying to test out oversampling in HQP and sending that signal to my Holo May DAC via USB.

I followed the setup page for adding HQP as a zone within Roon.

My core and HQP are on the same machine (2021 MacBook Pro) so I used the “localhost” guidelines.

However, when I want to stream Qobuz with the HQP zone as my output, Roon says it cannot connect.

I have no idea how to make this work. I’m at a loss at this point.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

***Note that in the setup guide, there’s reference to a “globe icon in the upper right of HQP.”

That icon doesn’t exist in my toolbar…

Welcome @James_Schaefer
I moved your post to the HQP section where I am sure some of our resident “experts” will be able to assist you with this the best.

You downloaded wrong version of HQP

Don’t use “Pro” version . Use normal
