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.
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?
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?
