Monoprice HTP-1 another victim of "Roon Ready"

The OP has two possible options. They are, return the device for a refund, or use one of the several suggested “work-arounds” until the device receives their Roon Ready certification, if ever.

Dirac bypass.

Relocated Roon server to rack, so thats better than the shield for audio. Debating on the return of the HTP-1, which I feel like doing just on principal at this point.


For an A/V system this processor seems to be ahead of the pack. Others on this forum use it.

For a HiFi system, not so much. For the money there are better options.

Of course, having two distinct system doubles your outlay.

And therein lies my issue- I’m 50/50 movies and music but I definitely value high resolution audio. I might wait get the AVM70 in December if that actually happens.

You could keep the Monoprice for A/V and for your HiFi needs buy a pre-amp or integrated amp that has HT pass thru.

I have an Onkyo receiver for A/V, but pass thru the front channels to a PrimaLuna pre-amp.

Works for me.


This device is now certified. Any chance we could get a sub-forum for the Monoprice HTP-1?

Hi @Dan_Herrmann

Yes, I’m a advocate of having a category for each manufacturer of Roon Ready devices … I’ll ping the Roon team.

Sent back the HTP-1 after the majority of the balanced outputs failed. Just got my AVM70, far better unit in my opinion. Superior sound

Does anyone know if/when Anthem does Roon, will it be multichannel via Ethernet?
