Intel NUC Roon Core and CA CXN V2 Roon Endpoint setup

hi, currently I am having Intel NUC i5 as Roon Core , I intend to get a CA CXN V2 streamer to replace my old Aries Mini. I browsed through CXN V2 manual, they only explain about PC and MAC setup. There is no Linux setup.

My questions:

  1. Is the Linux setup similar like PC?
  2. Is the firmware version similar to PC or MAC or there is dedicated from Linux ?
  3. Since it is Linux, I do not think i need to install driver, do I?

Appreciate your input.


The CXN V2 is a network streamer, so connect it to an Ethernet port, so you can benefit from Roon RAAT. In this regard, there is no difference what OS your Roon core runs on.

It may be OK from the off. The most you should need to go is enter the CXN settings and enable Roon operation.

Thanks for the link, I will read through.

I fully understand that CXN V2 is ROON endpoint and still need ROON Core as my original post.

My question is about its CXN V2 firmware.

So in short , the firmware update of CXN V2 doesn’t really matter if it’s on ROON platform ?

It should play with any platform Roon supports.
