Description Of Issue

Roon is very disappointing with the Naim Nova, and it’s strange since the Nova is certified Roon. The sound quality is the worst compared to all the other solution (“Audirvana”, the Native App) : recessed medium, bright highs…etc. I have to turn the sound knob about 30% to get the same debit I get with the other solution. Someone suggest that it may be a Raat issue, I am not sure what it means.


For information on RAAT and many other Roon topics check the Roon Help Site.

Can you post a screen shot of Roon’s Signal Path screen, this will detail what happening to the audio signal and how it is being streamed to the Naim.


I am not sure to understand which screen shot you do need; may I ask you to share an exemple please.

Best regards

Again see the Roon Help - Signal Path information on what it is and example screenshots.
