Description of the problem

Roon Rock discovered the Hegel H390 as ALSA only. can not use mode Roon!

This is correct; ALSA is the audio driver for ROCK, and what Roon will use. Enable the device, and you’ll be able to use the Hegel with Roon.

Roon Ready only applies to Ethernet input. If you use the USB input of the Hegel (or any dac for that matter), it will never be considered Roon Ready.


Is alsa the best option in my case?

You can try both methods together, and decide for yourself. In theory, there should be no difference.


Hi @Nikolay_Frolov,

Just checking in here. Did you get things figured out?


Everything is ok. The sound quality is the same by ALSA and LAN.
LAN is limited to 24/192.
However, LAN gives volume control functions and an amplifier sleep timer.
