Description Of Issue

Just upgrades from Tidal HI-FI to Masters. Tidal Hi Fi files play ok, and so do local FLAC or MP3 files. Tidal Masters or MQA do not play through ROON. they do play directly on Node 2i and Node2i performs render and decoding. When I clic on play, Roon stops working and freezes for a few seconds. Nothing happens then.

I assume so. I can play everything else.

There is an option to use an external DAC. I have that option disabled.

I have done that. If I play directly from the BluOS app a Master it plays and sounds perfect.

When I try to play that same master from Roon, I get a bunch of errors.


GOT IT!! It was, after all, a Roon configuration. Thanks for your help!!!
