Description of Issue

It’s my first use. I am trying to connect to a Naim NDX streamer.
When I look in the set-up page, Audio Devices, it has a video showing how to connect your device but my Roon doesn’t show that selection option.

This is what I see

How can I connect my Naim?


Is the RAAT server allowed through your firewall ?

Is your Naim NDX a V2 , looks like the V1 isn’t Roon Ready

The NDX isnt Roon Ready it won’t see it as it’s UPnP only. Roon doesn’t support UPnP. Only the latest generation of streamers and Unitis support Roon natively. You can however use another piece of software to bridge UPnP to Roon but these are DIY and not officially supported. Many Naim owners use these. There is a hardware version made by Sonore or you can use free software if your not afraid of fiddling with an app called LMS2UPnP or there is an extension for Roon which is a plugin you can buy and run on a Raspberry pi which does the same. There are many threads on using Roon with an NDX on Naims forum and here if you care to search for them.


Thank you both for your replies.

You’ve saved me a few hours of frustration.
