All is working well, but there’s one feature I don’t understand. On the volume control, it now displays a Power Icon in Red. I don’t get this on my other Roon endpoints (1 x CCA and one RPi4 running Ropiee). It is red when playing. When I press it, it stops the stream. But it doesn’t power down the box (which is done by a physical button). Any advice gratefully received. Thank you.
The ARCAM Solo Uno exposes a “standby” control to Roon.
Many devices offer a “standby” feature which keeps the network module activated while entering a low-power mode for the audio boards on the device. This is separate from a “power” switch which would turns off everything in the unit. The button on the front of the Solo Uno is a power switch.
The control you’re seeing in Roon allows you to control the wake/standby status of the device.
That said, I attached a power meter to the Solo Uno, there doesn’t appear to be much (if any) difference between wake / standby modes. The idle power usage of the device is around ~3w regardless of standby state which is fairly efficient.
Thanks for looking into this (and sorry for my slow reply!). That makes sense… thank you. Not surprising the power fluctuation is so small - but I suppose it’s something. Thanks again for the info.
