Description of Issue

The system works well with Win10 or Winserver 2019. But I would like to switch to Roon-Rocks based on Linux. I know that Merging NADAC is using Rock and Roon. My question: did somebody tried to connect Merging Hapi to Rocks? There exist an ALSA Linux driver for Linux but am unable to install it. Any help will be appreciated
Best regards

Merging doesnt use ROCK stock. They have a custom RoonOS build on the NADAC+PLAYER. It’s similar to ROCK, as ROCK is also RoonOS, but I want to clarify that it is indeed special and they do have permission to do this.

Theoretically, this can work, but we don’t have a good way to turn on/ship the RAVENNA drivers. You will probably need to run Ubuntu or something until we solve this.

thank you very much for your answer. As Hapi and Horus are very similar to Nadac I thought that it can’t be so difficult to implement the ALSA driver into Rock. You clarified what is the actual situation. Will there be a chance in the future that Hapi can be used with Roon-Rock? I would be very happy if I could use Linux instead of this big Windows!
Best regards
