I just installed Ropieee XL on a Pi4 and have a USB DAC connected.
The issue happens with any DAC (I tried two) and it is like this:
- First, in Roon audio devices I see two: the DAC and the Ropieee which shows as a Shairport device and Roon plays to it via Airplay. I am not sure if this is normal? I was expecting that since Ropieee runs RAAT it would appear as a RAAT device not as an Airplay device to Roon?
- Second and this is in fact the problem that bothers me is that when I select for playback the Ropieee over Airplay the volume maxes out quite low and at about 80% it is already almost mute, so the range of volume adjustment is very low. The same thing happens when playing Airplay directly from Apple Music or other app, outside of Roon.
- When selecting the USB DAC everything is normal.
Is there any way to correct this? I couldn’t find anything obvious in Ropieee settings. There is a ‘force volume’ setting but I’m not sure what it does.
