You could possibly connect a Raspberry Pi to it as long as the RPi has an analog out, or any streamer that has an analog out. Alternatively, you could connect your Mac or Windows Roon Core’s System Output to the Echo Dot and then select “System Output” to play though it.
That’s my answer to the question. You can ask a question, but you don’t get to censor the answers you receive. IMHO, if you’re going to the bother and expense to use Roon, you should use a system that makes it worthwhile.
Jim, System Output on a Mac or Windows PC is anything that is connected to the default audio output, which can be wired, WiFi, or Bluetooth. I play music on my Mac from Roon to paired HomePod Minis or occassionaly to a Bluetooth speaker when they (or it) are set as my audio output direclty in the Mac. Same principle applies for W10/W11 computers.
yes but also trying to find elegant solution, i have audiophile system for roon yes.
These speakers are in kitchen/bathroom etc… to control house … so why not to use them for some background streaming? Noone is going to do audiophile listening on these 20euro ■■■■■■■■■■■■ but why not stream music to background in areas where speakers just waste a space…
They tried this and didn’t pursue it as it was too limited and a poor Roon experience, there is something on the forum about it if you search… Also Roon is too close to Room in sound and it apparently confused the voice recognition, no surprise as I find ours dreadful.
