Description Of Issue

Switching from usb to ethernet my Teac USB Asio config disappears from my Roon audio available configurations.
If I want to select the usb input again I have to do it manually from the remote or through the Teac front panel rotary selector.


Automatic switching from a non-network input to network RAAT input, when triggered by network Roon playback, is a Roon Ready requirement for a Roon Ready endpoint. The opposite direction is not required. This is compliant behavior.

Switching away from USB causing the USB electronics to be deactivated sounds normal to me.

I think Roon can remote the Teac switch through a software command.

The NT-505 is interesting in that of my three DACs, all of which are pitched at a similar price point, it is the only one that disables USB when using another input. On my Black Dragon and NuWave DSD selecting another input via Roon does not stop Roon seeing the USB. It is therefore possible to switch back from within Roon. I don’t think it is something Roon can ‘fix’. It would be up to Teac to do something. It might be interesting to see if this is a Network/USB issue or if it also does this when using coax or one of the other legacy inputs.
