KEF LSX speakers, set up as a Roon device
Description Of Issue
I set up the KEF as a Roon device per instructions found here. They sound wonderful… but when listening, after some amount of time, the music stops. Not always consistent amounts of time, while I haven’t measured it’s different enough that I’m sure of that.
Literally, the music just stops. I still see the seconds counting down on the playback bar. If I pause and restart, then no seconds count down. The LSX status light still shows they’re at the ready.
If I click on the “zone” the LSX no longer show up. If I go into Roon Setup, they don’t show up there other than as AirPlay devices. Restarting the LSX doesn’t change things. Restarting the Roon control on my laptop or whatever I’m using doesn’t fix things.
If I restart the Roon Core - close Roon, then open it - the LSX speakers will once again show up, as Roon targets (along with showing as AirPlay targets. No, I do not have both AirPlay and Roon targets selected.)
All of this while streaming Qobuz. I haven’t done long listening sessions from my music server, but the ones I’ve done, I had one drop; same problem, the device disappeared, reappeared when restarted Roon Core.
I’ve not listened much time on AirPlay… did initially, but once I saw I could set up as a Roon target, and heard the sound difference (yes there was certainly a sound difference) I’ve not listened on AirPlay other than a few times for a few minutes while chasing the problem.
