Roon suddenly can't find its Core

iMac late 2015, macOS Big Sur 11.4

ASUS Mesh early 2021, wlan ethernet

Linn Akurate


Suddenly Roon stopped working and is saying “choose a zone” and the connection to Linn streamer was broken. I have restarted the network and computers twice. When I try to configure Roon OS Core its just saying “Looking for Roon OS Core” but nothing happens. Any clues?

Thanks in advance,

Hello @Johannes_Larsson,

Thanks for getting in touch when things didn’t go right. We’d love to help.

To begin with, the configure Roon Core function is only applicable when running RoonServer (e.g. you have a Nucleus or a NAS or a NUC). If your Roon Core is on an iMac, this function cannot be used.

If you navigate to Settings → Audio, what do you see? Could you please send us a screenshot?

Could you please reboot your Linn streamer (please turn it off, unplug it for a couple of minutes, plug it back in and turn it on).

Thanks in advance :pray:

Hi Rebeka,

Thanks for your input and support, suddenly everything just works again after resetting all units triple times.

Best regards,
