It is attached via LAN and always up and running. You cant shutdown or set it to Off. So I have to start the Yamaha because Sotm is already on…Since the beginning its working like that but now its kinda annoying…even if i go out for a walk, I need to restart it by pushing the small button on the back
Do you have another dac around just to test if it behaves the same way? Does sotm have any software ui that you can access from a browser using it’s ip dress. If you reboot your router does that any good?
Is your SOtM far away from the Roon Core? If close one to another you can link them directly with ethernet, you just need one more dongle USB to LAN for your core to connect to your usual network and then from core normal ethernet you connect to the bridge (SOtM). the only downside it would ne that the SOtM will be accessible only from the core. If you want to try it is a 10 minutes setup.
A USB connected DAC needs to been present in streamer before Roon sees that streamer as audio endpoint.
What I assume is happening…
When you shutdown the Yamaha the sotm sees that usb go away, then Roon removes the audio device. When you power on the Yamaha the sotm doesn’t see the USB come back. I don’t think this is all that uncommon. You can unplug / plug in or just keep resetting the sotm.
I’m just saying that the sMS-200 works with most devices, but some might have issues due to variations within their USB Implementation. You miight even be able to find remedy in the setting of the Yamaha, such as USB Power schemes and such.
And i wasn’t suggesting that DSD128 isnt good enough, it’s just that your settings in Eunhasu are not correct. I’d set it to DSD DoP and max DSD128. See if that helps?
I’d also avoid USB Volume, and set to fixed. You will be able to change volume on the Yamaha but i don’t reckon youll be able to set it from within Roon with the sMS-200 in between?
