Roon 2.0 Build 1178 and ARC Build 100 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

Today’s earlyaccess release is focused on a number of issues that were reported when certain DACs were used with the new Android USB audio driver in ARC. If you use an external USB DAC with ARC on your Android device please be sure to test the configuration to ensure that we didn’t introduce any regressions.

While this is focused on an ARC feature the actual fix required changes to ARC and the Roon Core so please be sure that both are up-to-date before testing.

We’ve also made some changes that should improve the loading performance of the bios/reviews on the details pages, your feedback is welcome.

Thank you for your continued support,
The Team at Roon Labs
