Roon sees my Auralic Aries Mini as an Express modem


Basically, it is nice to be able to use the Arualic Aries Mini to play music in my bedroom BUT there is NO Airport Express modem in the bedroom and all my HiRes files are down convert to 44.1/16.

I can’t find a way to get Roon to change the nature of that link. Please advise.

I don’t believe the Auralic Aries Mini has the software to be a full Roon endpoint. The only way for Roon to see the mini is through it’s Airplay functionality; which of course is why Roon is down coverting the music to the level of Airplay specs. See this Roon blog for more info:
