I’m running Roon Version 1.4 (build 310) 64 bit on a dedicated HP PC quad core i5 processors and 16 GB RAM under Windows 10 PRO (1709). My Yamaha AS-810 amp has a built in DAC that’s theoretically high quality (Yamaha Steinberg USB ASIO). I’ve updated it with the latest driver (version 1.9.10, from 3/7/2017).
Unwanted Behavior: Whenever the bitrate changes (up or down) I get a message “Transport: Roon lost control of audio device.” Playback stops until you hit the “Play” button. Which is disruptive and annoying…
Attempt 1: Tried setting a 4 second “Resync Delay” but no change in behavior. Tried tons of other settings, no change in behavior.
Attempt 2: Reviewed the post in Support from another Yamaha AS-810 user, cloned their settings, but saw no change in behavior. Noticed that they were using an older version of the AS-810 driver (1.9.8 vs. 1.9.10 on mine)
The good news is that the new Yamaha driver supports all the different bitrates, it’s a shame that it doesn’t work seamlessly with Roon.
Any suggestions outside of buying a Roon approved DAC?
