Description of Issue

New Roon user using a new Musica Pristina A Cappella III streamer, however, the Roon app (1.8) does connect/recognize the streamer.

That streamer model is not listed as Roon Ready…

Hey Remus, welcome to the community!

Your system listing is missing the crucial central component, the Roon core, since your MPAC-III is “only” a network player/streamer (click the link to go to Roon’s knowledge base and read up on Roon’s system concept).


Marin_Weigel is correct. We would have made sure you (@Remus_Preda) had the right pieces prior to selling you this unit had you purchased it directly from us. (@MusicaPristina)

You have a few options:

  1. Run Roon Core on a desktop/laptop pc on your network, connected via ethernet
  2. Build yourself a ROCK
  3. Buy a Roon Nucleus
  4. probably other options exist as well

Let’s discuss this offline… I’ll reach out to you today.
