Hey @Steve_Waterworth,

Thanks for taking the time to write in, and sorry to hear about your airplay issues!

Two immediate things you can test:

  1. Toggle on the Airplay compatibility switch for your Naim device - you can find this setting by clicking your volume icon> cogwheel>device setup>show advanced
  2. If your issues still persist, see if adding your Naim to your apple Home app helps. Steps can be found via this KB:

If neither help, please reproduce the issue, share the track name, and use the directions found here and send over a set of logs to our File Uploader.

Thank you!

I’ve given up with Roon, I’ve cancelled my subscription. I’ve gone open source, it just worked, why pay a premium for an inferior system?

Hi @Steve_Waterworth,

I’m certainly sorry to hear this. If you change your mind and find interest in continuing to troubleshoot, feel free to tag me directly moving forward. :+1:
