I have been enjoying Roon very much and decided that computer music was the way to go, so invested in an Auralic Aries.
The Aries doesn’t appear as an endpoint in Roon, but I understand that Auralic and Roon are working together and we can expect (possibly with Roonspeakers) native integration between the two.
That’s OK, I thought. I will make do with Airplay. But after activating Airplay on the Aries, Roon didn’t show any Airplay endpoint. I found this thread. Has there been any advance in Airplay integration with the Aries since May ?
That’s OK, I thought. I will make do with Songcast. But after activating Songcast and making it the default system output and verifying that it was working with the Aries through Foobar, I can’t find it in Roon. Whenever Songcast is chosen as the system output, Roon either won’t start or won’t recognise any system output. Disabling and enabling doesn’t help. Rebooting the PC and restarting the Aries doesn’t help. I also found this thread where two users report a similar problem. @Kirk, however, seems to have Airplay working, albeit with unsatisfactory SQ.
Any tips as to how to how to get Roon to talk to an Aries ?
Should I just use a wired connection and bypass the Aries until Roonspeakers arrives ?
