Roon 1.8 issues with connecting to DAC

Since installing 1.8 Roon does not see my DAC and will not connect to it without having to restart/reboot my core.

When I click on the audio source button on the play bar my DAC is not listed. When I access audio on the side bar I can see my DAC and the settings but I am unable to connect to it.

This is a serious problem as I have a large library and do not want to have to reset my Core every time I listen to music.

Any thoughts or solutions?


What DAC is that and how is it connected to the network aka the Core.
If you want to get help, you need to give.

I am using a USB connection running from my Core directly into my Luxman SACD D-06U. It worked perfectly with 1.7 and now only a reset or reboot of Core will permit a connection.

Windows, Mac, linux, Rock on a Nucleus … something else?

Core is on a Rhein Silent Angel Z1 V2. It’s running on VitOS operating software.

I’m having the same issue with my USB DAC after updating to 1.8. Just posted about it here: Need to Restart Core to Detect USB DAC

Sam issue here. I’m on MacOs Big Sur with a USB DAC. Core is on a qnap NAS.

Apologies for the trouble! We’re working on a solution to this and will keep everyone updated here:
