I’ve just acquired a new speaker for the room where my computer is and so would like to use RoonBridge so my computer’s audio output can be synced with my Roon-ready Linn streamers elsewhere in the house. I’ve currently got System Output enabled, so when I can play Roon through the new speaker.
What I can’t do is group the computer with the Linns. I’ve downloaded RoonBridge and it says it’s running, but in Audio settings my computer still isn’t visible as a networked device.
Thanks for the quick reply Dylan. That’s a shame about the grouping but hey ho.
One more question: my understanding is that Built-In Output has better SQ than System Output, because Roon can run in Exclusive Mode. But I only seem to be able to connect to my Bluetooth speaker via System Output - when I select Built-In Output it only plays through the computer speakers. Is it that Built-In Output require a wired connection?
That doesn’t seem to work. I have a B&W Zeppelin Wireless connected with a headphone cable to an Audioquest Dragonfly plugged into a USB out on my computer. System Output now won’t enable. Built-in output does, but still plays through the computer speakers instead of the Dragonfly/Zeppelin. The Mac’s audio output is set to use the Dragonfly, so computer sound comes out of the Zeppelin fine.
Roon plays to Linn devices using a different method than other endpoints, so for that reason we are not able to group Linn devices with other zones. We appreciate your feedback though, Josh. I’ll be sure to pass it along to the team.
