Roon Extension: McIntosh Volume, Source and Power Control

Hi all,

I’ve “finished” my first efforts on extension for McIntosh C47 volume/source/power control via RS232 protocol.
It’s now available on Github: roon-extension-mcintosh.
There is an associated project which deals with the actual RS232 parsing, if you would want to have a closer look: node-mcintosh.

Anyone have this up and running?, I have tried to understand if I can connect like a RaspberryPi to my Mcintosh Amp, if I am not using it as my end point?

Basically I am streaming through a NAIM streamer so solving this by grouping the RPI with the NAIm for volume is not an option.

Any Ideas or suggestions?

@John_Jensen , I don’t have this setup anymore, but yes it was working great.
And yes, you can use RaspberryPI for the extension. You would just need the RS232 cable which can be plugged into USB on the RPI.
Let say like this one: cp2102 USB Serial RS232 Cable Dsub 9pin Male Plug Silabs cp210x Type B RS232 Converter PCBA|com port rs232|adapter cabledb9 adapter - AliExpress
But before you get one, make sure the pins are assigned the same as on your MC gear.
