I’m new to Roon and Qnap. I just got a snazzy new Qnap TVS-473e with the intention of using it as a Core, and connecting it via USB directly to my McIntosh MA6700 integrated amp. On the Qnap interface, the Roon Server recognizes my amp:
However, when I go to my Controller (iPhone or PC), the amp doesn’t appear as an output:
I know the amp will play USB audio from the Qnap, as I’ve managed to achieve this with Qnap’s own Music Station app. And when I use my PC as the Core, also no issues. But I would ideally like to (1) use Roon instead of Qnap’s app, (2) only keep the Qnap on all day and not my PC as well, and (3) avoid sticking another box between the Qnap and the amp.
I’m fairly certain my problem is a software/setting/driver-type issue, and from the Qnap Roon Server log files I can see that it gets caught in some kind of loop, but I’m not smart enough to know how to diagnose and fix it. I’m guessing that @crieke and you other dudes are though. Can someone help?
