Description Of Issue

Roon is loosing control of my Kef LSX speakers. I have tried by wifi on google wifi, by wifi on an apple airport extreme on a dedicated 5Ghz network connected to my google wifi network, by ethernet on a wifi pod on my google wifi network and finally directly on the ethernet port of my google wifi router. It is still loosing control of my speakers. I am desperate!!!


Have you reached out to KEF about this issue? If your network is in good working shape I’m struggling to imagine how Roon could be responsible for the speakers throwing errors.

If you want to test your network, I would try streaming Roon to the System Output zone of a Mac or PC for a a period of time that exceeds the amount of time you would normally encounter an error with the KEFs.


In fact, it is throwing errors when I am skipping songs quickly. I can however change my speaker input to Airplay 2 and it then plays ok without any issues and then can revert to the Kef streaming.
