Description of Issue

Burson DAC/headphone amp is connected to the Mac Pro (running Ubuntu) and shows in the audio list (settings->audio)

Power off Burson DAc/headphone amp and device disappears from the audio device list (as expected):

Power back on the Burson DAC/headphone amp and device reappears in the list of devices but shows as “device not found”:

Click on the gear wheel and try reconnection - device connects ok.

Expected result is that the DAC is both recognised (it is) AND reconnects automatically (it does not)

Hi @John_Maton ,

Are you still seeing this behavior in Roon 2.0? Do you notice the issue when you are in the regular MacOS environment? Your setup is a bit on the #tinkering side since you’re running Ubuntu on a Mac, but I’d be curious to know if anything has changed since your post.

Apologies, Just packed up all of my equipment for a move to another country. It will be a few weeks before I can test the specific setup again. I will report back when I get my Mac Pro delivered.

I have made the same experience: Connect my ifi DAC via USB to my Mac Pro and my headphones and configured and named that audio device – everything is working as expected.
After shutting the DAC off und trying to reconnect it later on, I have to reconfigure it. Roon should remember this device, but it doesn’t.
Core 2.0 and Roon client 2.0

To just enter a data point, my DAC doesn’t need reconfiguration after a power cycle.
Setup is:
Win 11 autologin, Roon 2.0/1128 server autostart, SMSL M300MkII with XMOS ASIO driver, directly connected via Intona USB Isolator (same behavior with all prior Roon versions).
