I have a question regarding my PC setup. I am running Roon on a headless server and my PC setup has a Raspberry Pi with DietPi (and I have a RopieeeXL build too which I can swap out). This has a Justboom AMP HAT and that’s driving a pair of small bookshelf speakers. Very happy with it, works seamlessly with the rest of the Roon devices.
However, if I want to hear any audio from my PC, I have no way of allowing Windows to output to the Pi - I’ve tried connecting a USB cable directly to the Pi, but it doesn’t work - no audio passes through.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do about it?
Would a HiFiBerry DAC+ DSP work if I ran an optical cable to it? (Seems to be an expensive solution considering that’s more expensive than the original AMP HAT though)
Or are there any apps I could install on the Ropieee or DietPi that would allow the PC to “see” the Pi as a WASAPI/ALSA output? I can’t find anything online, so it looks like I might need another solution, but I can’t think of one - any ideas please?
