Description of Issue

Hi, I have a spanking new iFi hip dac2, when I’m setting up Audio I don’t see it listed as one of the iFi devices. I’m using the iFi Micro iDac2 but I’m wondering if one of the other units are a better match? Thanks!


Standalone DACs that are not networked or streamers (basically just a USB DAC) should work fine with Roon. I have ~10, some are Roon Tested, some are not, and all work fine.

I have friends who have ~ 10 guitars. Or 30 in normal math :wink:

Thanks for responding. It works fine, I just wanted to know which would be a better match to what I have, if anything.

Stick with what it gives as its setting it up based on what it can detect your not going to improve on this. None of my dacs are roon tested I just leave them at defaults.
