My LS50 wireless speakers will disconnect from Roon at random times, and the message on my remote will be “roon has lost control of the audio device” Sometimes I can simply hit play and it will start playback again, sometimes it will require a reboot of the speaker, and sometimes it will require me to stop and start the roon core again. Most of the time this happens without any interaction from the user, the system simply stops playing music. This may have something to do with the LS50w seek/previous/next bug which I have commented on here in the support forum.
I cannot run a wired connection to the speakers, I have tried a 2.4ghz connection, 5ghz connection, and even used another ASUS router as a wireless bridge and hard-wired the LS50w to it… All connections exhibit the same behavior. In all cases, the wireless connection is “excellent” and I have no problems with my wireless anywhere else. I also have a squeezebox 3 connected via 2.4ghz wireless in the same room maybe 1.5 feet from the LS50w and I can run that at the exact same time and there is never a single dropout, so I know it is not a problem with with my other components. The LS50w will loose connection, but the squeezebox will continue to play as if nothing happened. I also have a Chromecast in another room wired to the network that never has a problem either.
