I am using an active network speaker (a Musaic MP5 Speaker) in a room which is primarily there for guests occupying that room who would like to stream their spotify music via spotify connect or use BT for direct streaming from their mobile phones.
As I also would like to make that device roon ready via a RoonBridge, I installed dietpi with roonbridge on a Raspberry Pi 2 and connected the Raspberry Pi via analog cinch cable to the Aux In input at the active speaker. While that works, I only have one issue:
The active speaker goes into network standby and only wakes up when receiving a digital wake signal, such as from spotify connect or BT or any streaming signal via Ethernet or Wifi. As RoonBridge is connected via analog cable to AuxIn, it does not wake up the speaker. I.e., I have to manually switch on the speaker, be it via the Musaic App or physically pressing a button on the speaker.
Any idea how I could circumvent this manual “switch-on” step?
