(Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!)
I honestly do not know if it got official Roon Tested status.
If it did then yes it should show but as CA already appear to have pulled a bit of a fast one by claiming Roon Ready who knows if it really is even Roon Tested.
Is it listed as Roon Tested by Roon themselves?
I do not see this model under Roon tested on the official Roon website under Cambridge Audio so possibly not even Roon Tested status.
Of course it might not be the latest updated list either.
The DacMagic 200M has been designed as a Roon Ready product, however, Roon don’t appear to have updated their system yet to include it in this classification. This could be because they have not completed their testing or may be simply a result of a work backlog. As a result, some Roon Ready features may not be available yet.
We are currently chasing up the certification status with Roon.
Then either me or CA do not understand the requirements of Roon Ready. As far as I am aware to be Roon Ready implies the implementation of RAAT as a network protocol. A DAC only device without network connection can never meet that requirement
The back panel has no network connection, it would require a bridge device to connect
Direct connection by USB may qualify for Roon Tested but not Roon Ready
That’s not what the bold statement above says, I’m a CA fan and long time user but that statement is either confused or downright wrong .
There are enough “premature” Roon Ready claims for kit that may sometime qualify, a DAC simply doesn’t. Ironically @danny commented that CA were a good team to work with, maybe he should set them , or me, straight.
I was seriously considered buying one, funnily enough the lack of a remote put me off as my DAC has to pass WAF and be hidden in a glass unit. I hope I know enough to not be swayed by what looks like false claims BUT as we know a lot of Roon users have been caught short by such claims. Witness the Sep 21 debacle …
CA are normally so good and accurate it seemed out of character for them to “pull the wool”
I have been using their kit since my first DAC , the DAC Magic 100 and am a big fan.
Out of interest the CXN had an issue (using Rpi / Riopeee) with Linux and Class 2 USB a while back @spockfish pinned it down to their implementation of USB. The 200 has only Class 2 USB I see , I wonder if that glitch has been eliminated. I can find the thread if you want it.
I believe that Roon does the first decode by default so that you can use the DSP functions of Roon on the stream (e.g. for room corrections). If the DAC handles everything, you can’t use Roon’s DSP with the stream. More info here:
Buongiorno, ho acquistato Cambridge Audio dacmagic 200M in rete e mi arriverà tra qualche giorno:mi domando devo dire installare i driver Cambridge Audio per Windows 10 oppure Roon riconosce e installa tutto automaticamente.
