Static during playback with 1.2 and Dirac [Solved]

Version 1.2 has blown up Dirac for me. When I choose Dirac as my zone, I get unlistenable static overlaying the music. When I choose direct connection to my DAC as my zone, all is well, but of course I lose the signal processing of Dirac.

Is there a way to go back to the prior version of Roon?

Hey @jiminlogansquare,

Would you mind try to enable “Use Power-of-2 Hardware Buffer Size” in zone settings ? Let us know if it help.


Sure, where do I find that setting? I am not trying to be obtuse, but I sincerely don’t know what you mean by the phrase “zone settings” or how to adjust those settings.

Nevermind; I found the setting you indicated and enabled it. This fixed my problem. Thank you!

Hey @jiminlogansquare,

To enable this setting you need to follow the steps below:

  1. Launch Roon
  2. Open Settings
  3. Go to Audio tab
  4. Press on gear icon in front of Dirac zone
  5. Pick ‘Settings’ from the dropdown
  6. Go to ‘Playback’ tab
  7. Mark “Use Power-of-2 Hardware Buffer Size” option

heh, I was too slow :slight_smile:

I had the same issue, with same cure.

My playback chain is: Roon remote (IOS) -> Roon Server (Mac Mini) -> Dirac -> NAD M12
