Pro-Ject MaiA DS2 support in Ropieee?


I got RoPieee running just fine with output through a HifiBerry Digi+ board, but since RoPieee supports USB output to a DAC, I tried connecting it to my Pro-Ject MaiA DS2 Amplifier which has a built-in DAC that supports hi-res PCM and DSD 256.

The MaiA DAC shows up in the audio config of my Roon core, but playback regularly fails after a few seconds without any audio output. I guess the MaiA just isn’t supported yet, or has anyone had any luck with it?


I figured it out myself. The solution is quite simple: the amp needs a newer firmware. Updating to 1.07 (from 1.06 in my case) did the trick. It’s playing PCM and DSD over RoPieee through a USB connection just fine now.
