Hi - I’ve used Roon on my Mac mini for years, with my Simaudio Moon 280D with Mind2 DAC /Streamer. I’ve always used the ethernet output. I haven’t used it in a. couple of months due to mainly using vinyl - but today it won’t work.
Roon allows me to select the 280d as an output, but tt never starts to play. Previously when I went into OSX settings in the sound section it would list the 280D as an output option, now it only lists my tv, and the built in Mac mini speaker.
The audio MIDI app used to also list the 280D as an option but again doesn’t show it
Things I have tried:
Firewall on Mac is turned off
I can play music through Tidal or my NAS drives using my mind app, just not Roon
I’ve tried applying th music direct from the Mac mini, or using the Roon app on my phone - same issue
I’ve run the latest software updates on Mac, Roon, and 280d
I’ve reset all of the items (MAC, 280D)
Have you tried turning everything off, then rebooting your router, then after the router is operating again, turning on your Mac, starting Roon, and then starting the 280D and see if the 280D reappears to the Mac and Roon?
What version of Mac mini and MacOS are you using? I’m wondering if Apple may have affected the networking functionality with their latest OS update.
Robert, I saw you forwarded this to me and it sounds almost identical to my problem. The only difference is I don’t have the PS-Audio Stellar connected to network. It’s only connected to Mac-Mini with USB cable. The Mac used to see it fine & Roon worked great before I updated to the latest version of Monterey, 12.5.1 (I think it is). Now it doesn’t see the Stellar no matter what I do.
Called Apple Support, and they couldn’t get USB port to work either. The port works fine for external disk, but not for Stellar DAC. This is the update from last week that Apple said to install because of security issues. All it did was screw up my system. Between my own testing and Apple’s, it’s been turned on and off and rebooted into various states many times with zero luck. It’s the Mac OS update. Even Apple support admitted it.
Robert, No I don’t have anything else to use as a Core, not without redoing cabinet and I’d have to hire help to do that. It’s very heavy and hard to move. I have CD/DVD player and will use that for music until I get resolution from Apple. I’m going to bug them again about it in a few days.
Don’t know if you read my latest messages. Recently, Apple came out with another update to Monterey OS, but it didn’t fix problem. They recommended going back to Big Sur OS, but I’d have to get store to do that, so I did. It meant erasing internal disk and installing Big Sur, plus $90. I also had to reset the PRAM. After all that, the MacMini sees the Stellar Gain Cell DAC like it used to. Installed Roon, and it’s all working again. Needless to say, no more updates!!
