Turn anything with an aux input into a Roon endpoint

Y’all probably already know this, but…

Yesterday I was thinking about how I could play Roon in the bedroom which previously only had dlna playback via Tivo and a soundbar.

My first thought was a Sonos speaker. Then I saw how much they cost.

Then I remembered I had a Chromecast Audio lying around somewhere not being used, and a JBL Xtreme portable bluetooth amp/speaker with an aux input.

Hooked it up as an experiment. Works like a champ.

Now I’m thinking of something like a cheap Lepei amp and some small bookshelf speakers.

Roon Chromecast support opens up a lot of inexpensive options for multi-room audio. Nice!


My garage is Chromecast enabled, amazing for such a tiny device.
