Roon out via iMac USB to local DAC

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)
1.7 build 511.

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
Apple iMac.

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

Description Of Issue
I want to connect Roon which is resident on my iMac to a non Roon DAC via USB out. Right now Roon is playing through the internal speakers even though both MIDI and Audio show that the NuForce DAC is selected


Make sure the NuForce DAC zone is active and selected in Roon.

Hi -

Not sure if it is identifying the DAC?

I have the NuForce under “Desk top” How do I select that?

Hi @Christopher_Korody,

It looks like your one zone is not named — Can you try making sure that the Nuforce DAC in Settings > Audio is has a Zone name and then you can select that Zone from the Zone Picker?

Thanks for your help - that did it
