Describe the issue

When listening to music, it stops and Roon says the connection has been lost and it starts searching the Roon Server. It can then take hours for the connection to be back.

Describe your network setup

I use iPhone to control Nucleus, which is connected to my Bryston streamer.

Hi marko1,

Thanks for writing in and sharing your issue. Our initial scan of your Nucleus diagnostic didn’t report anything obvious in regards to audio dropouts.

Could you please reproduce the issue and share a more specific date, time, and the name of the track playing when the issue occurs? From there, we’ll be able to take another closer look at a fresh diagnostic report.

Thanks! :+1:


Here’s one example of when the problem occurred: July 7 at 4:19 PM Helsinki time (EEST) the Roon stopped to function during track Strawberry Woman from Jason Isbell.

This is very awkward problem: I listen to Tidal through Roon, and music stops and it just suddenly tells that my Roon Server is not available. When I try again, maybe 1-2 hours later, Roon normally works again. But it can happen, that it then stops again after a few minutes. Problem has been there for maybe 2 years and has made my Roon listening very difficult.

Hi @marko1,

Thanks for the report! I do see the track pausing moments before disconnecting from your network. How is your Nucleus connected to your router?

Are you able to set up a direct ethernet connection from your Nucleus to your router, bypassing all other network gear temporarily?

If you stream audio from the system output if your iOS device rather than your streamer, does the same issue occur?


sorry, my explanation was unclear: Nucleus is connected to web via ethernet cable. And Nucleus is connected to Bryston streamer via wifi. In my setup it is not easy to connect them to each other via ethernet cable. And connecting them this way may not reveal the problem, as it does not occur every day and not even every week.

I have not tested it so that I would use the IOS device without the streamer.

Hi @marko1,

This still points to a potential network-related issue.

Sorry for any confusion, are there any network switches or additional gear in between your router and Nucleus?

Let me know the results, thank you! :+1:
