I was happily using Ropieee XL to drive both the DAC in a Parasound amp and some Nuraphone headphones (these can be USB connected and have their own DAC). I could even run both at the same time by grouping them in Roon. Suddenly, things started going wrong. This may have been after a Ropieee reboot, but I’m not sure.
First, the Nuraphones stopped working. Roon could see them, and looked like it was happily playing to them, but no sound. Then Ropiee seemed to start rebooting whenever I went to the web interface, so I reflashed.
After the reflash, the Nuraphones still don’t work. Feedback 62a074e0d6f1a6be.
In addition, now when I play to the Parasound, everything works, but the display says “Zone Not Found”, and won’t display what’s actually playing. Feedback 15ab4a64e69f7d9f.
Appreciate any help…
Solved the second problem - mismatch between the zone name in Ropieee and the device name in Roon after the reflash.
Found something interesting with the first problem. It depends on the format of the file. A 44/16 file doesn’t get any sound, but something like a Tidal MQA file does. Connecting the Nurasounds directly to my iMac via USB works fine with Roon. This could be something to do with the way Roon sees the device’s capabilities when connected via Ropieee.
