I am trying to connect a Chord Qute EX to a microRenu. This DAC is not seen by the microRendu and therefore can not be seen as a ROON Endpoint.
If I substitute a different brand DAC it will see it, lets me do the DAC Diagnostics and can be seen as a ROON endpoint.
If I connect a X-core USB to SPDIF converter to the microRendu and then connect the Qute EX DAC via the coaxial input it will work.
I believe the issue is that this DAC selects which input it uses based on which input sees a signal. If I re-power the DAC while connected to the microRenu it cycles through its various lights and then goes into a standby mode.
I have also tried disconnecting the microRenu and then repowering while connected to the Chord, same issue. Different USB jumper and different USB cables. I also have tried rebooting the entire system, same issue.
Might there be a method to connect via the page that allows one to add a custom DAC. Could the Chord be a non-standard device?
I have seen several others on the internet forums that appear to be using the microRendu with the Chord Qute EX.
