Currently using a Sonic Transporter i5 as my Roon Core, and my PC as Roon Streamer and roon Remote. PC also being used to run HQPlayer.
I want to get my streaming off of the same computer that HQPlayer is running on.
I used to have an Ultrarendu to do exactly this, but it only supported DSD 512. What dedicated streamer will allow me to run DSD 1024 oversample rates? Will I end up just having to get another windows 10 PC and hook the DAC up to it and output HQPlayer through NAA to that PC?
Was preferring a fanless dedicated machine like Ultrarendu but can support DSD1024 is possible.
Does Roon recognize and support it at DSD1024 rate? Or are you using some other software package? If Roon sees it at that rate, then Roon Bridge on an RPi4 would probably also do so (assuming the kernel recognizes it as supporting native DSD transmisssion).
Just seeing this now but I have some questions about this.
So If I use my gaming pc as Roon Remote & HQPlayer workhorse, then my sonictransporter i5 as roon core, I could get the UpBoard Gateway to work as a streamer right? I could hook the UpBoard Gateway through ethernet to my router, and then usb output to my DAC? This should all work to where my Roon Core will find the Upboard Gateway through the network and be able to stream roon while being oversampled through HQPlayer running on my gaming pc?
Basically I’m looking for a streamer/naa that can replace my sonore ultrarendu with the reason being I want to be able to stream dsd 1024 with a dedicated streamer rather than using my Gaming PC to do so.
No, HQPlayer can find and use it. For Roon, everything ends at HQPlayer. Roon has no idea what happens past that point. So from Roon point of view there’s no difference if HQPlayer plays to locally connected DAC through USB or over network to a NAA endpoint.
UpBoard Gateway works with DSD1024 as endpoint, I’m using it all the time. But I’m not sure if Rendu can keep up with DSD1024.
this might be a silly question and if I should look somewhere else please let me know.
Is there any DAC that supports DSD 1024 and is recognized by Roon?
I am using an Aries G2 as player and connected it via USB to the Denafrips Pontus II
(which does doe DSD 1024). Roon only recognizes is as USB HiRes Audio and the maximal
DSD rate is 512.
BTW, even when using Auralics Lightning server, I only get USB HiRes Audio as output channel
and when playing DSD 1024 it tells me “DAC does not support that resolution”.
