When is another update of the beta USB driver in Roon ARC expected?
Is there a quick way to see which beta releases contain a USB update?
My DAC with USB input is a Soulution 330 but it doesn’t work with the USB driver.
I have a Grimm Audio MU1 streamer/server (MU1 - Grimm Audio) which has a Roon Core and a seriously good upsampling FPGA. However, it resamples DSD to PCM.
If I connect my tablet with USB to my Soulution DAC, then I can stream native DSD to it using Roon ARC (if the USB driver would work for me). Imho some DSD recordings sound quite a bit different than their PCM versions and I enjoy listening to those.
Exactly. Ignoring ARC, you have always been able to output via the normal Roon Remote app on an apple tablet and then out a USB cable to a DAC. Just make sure you have turned off Private mode for the tablet so that other endpoints can see it and play to it.
I have an Android tablet (samsung tab s7) which I read does not output to USB without using the OS audio driver AAudio, which in turn always resamples, so no native resolution, bitperfect transfer to USB.
Whence, when I read that ARC has its proprietary USB driver to circumvent the android limitations for USB audio, and thus providing bitperfect transfer and supporting DSD, I was under the impression it would only work as I want with ARC.
