Roon does not connect to my bridge

Core Device (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)
iPad Pro / iPad OS 14.7.1

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
Ideon Audio Absolute Stream / Ethernet

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Description Of Issue
Roon does not recognize this bridge.

A core device must be running on the network on a MAC/PC or NUC/Nucleus. iOS devices are only for Remotes but can also connect to a DAC to perform as an endpoint. They cannot be a CORE

Perhaps your setup description is missing some information? Ah a Nucleus … some research needed on the endpoint then.

Did this ever work before?

Hi @Alan_Asato,

In your previous support request you reported the Roon Core was running on a Nucleus, is that still correct?

I also had a quick look on Roon’s Partners Page … but did not see the “Ideon Audio Absolute Stream” listed, yet the IdeonAudio state it “Works as Roon bridge” …

Has this every worked or is it a new setup?

Let’s see what advice Roon’s @support team can offer.

Hello, thank you for your responses. Initially I replaced the Nucleus with this Streamer. I assumed it functioned like a Nucleus does. I’ll reconfigure this install with the Nucleus as the core. The Ideon Absolute Stream is very new and apparently not as “plug-n-play” friendly as I thought it would be. Thanks again for the responses.


It may work well to stream but you still need a Roon Core somewhere in your system.
To use Roon.
It sounds like it would stream other services on its own just fine.
So yes I would put the Nucleus back in line and go from there.

Hello Kevin, thanks for the input. It’s all starting to make sense now. The support from everyone is greatly appreciated!
