Description Of Issue
I am normally streaming the music from the core Roon server directly to the TEAC NT-505, which is a Roon certified device. There is a different NUC attached via usb directly to TEAC, where I am running kodi software. Streaming from Roon core to TEAC normally works fine, but there is a small use case scenario where it does not work – namely high res DSD files (you can only stream DSD64/128 to TEAC). I was wondering if it would be possible to install Roon bridge software on the NUC attached via usb and use that topology in that particular case? I am worried that both kodi and Roon bridge might require exclusive access to the audio. My kodi has been setup in a way to directly access alsa driver and pulseaudio has been completely disabled on the system.
Thanks for checking!
