Having read a few threads about using the iPad as a Roon endpoint, I just got the ipad camera connection kit lightning to USB in order to use the iPad as a Roon endpoint and stream to my Chord Mojo.
Unfortunately no joy so far
I cannot see the Chord Mojo attached to the iPad in the Roon audio settings. I can only see the iPad
Music only comes out of the iPad speakers
Are there any settings where I have to turn on the Mojo as an audio device. Or am I missing something else. I know others are using the Mojo connected to an iPad.
I have written to the supplier of the adapter whether it is genuine apple. As it does not have the little camera symbol on it, I suspect it may be a third party product, which would explain the behavior.
I can get the iPad to recognize the Mojo if I follow your sequence. I can even play music to the Mojo at the correct samplerate, but after around 10 seconds the iPad loses the connection.
Just out of interest, does your iPad as a roon endpoint stream DSD to the Mojo as DSD or does it convert to PCM?
If I try to play DSD while the connection works, the iPad immediately reverts to its onboard speakers.
I think you need the Poly to make that Mojo its own endpoint, visible as such in Roon, otherwise its the iOS device you are streaming to: you won’t see the Mojo as an option in Roon Endpoints. Which of course is significantly more expensive than a camera connection kit.
Although that looks like it might have issues of its own that may or may not be worked out on the Chord side of the implementation looking at this old thread.
This isn’t essential; unless you want to turn the Mojo into a DAP. Also, you still need a phone as Control when using the Poly with Roon. I pair my Mojo with an iPhone and it’s great, but only reliable with the Apple Camera Adaptor.
