SO I have dac/pre/headphone.
So I want NO dsp when Roon is going to headphones, but dsp when Roon going pre out to speakers. So i would like to set up two labless mydacA then mydacB (which has dsp associated with it ), which i select depending on the status of the dacprehead unit. Can I do this or is this “feature request”?
Have you tried defining two separate endpoints for the same pre-amp, but with a different combination of inputs/outputs/DSP-settings for each (virtual) endpoint? That’s pretty much what I do (with the additional controls of a Logitech hub-based Harmony remote and the Deep Harmony extension).
That seems a good compromise, enabling us to push on until the new feature lands
There is some suggestion here that one can check the DSP Preset selected by checking the “signal path” is that correct it doesn’t seem to happen on my system. I can right click on device then check unders DSP which is OK. But I was just checking if I had missed something out?
The limitation comes when there is only one output from Roon. This will be most of the time.
If your output to one other device is a specific USB driver, Roon will only report that driver as the zone. If you have two USB outputs and each USB output has a separate driver, and the endpoint (DAC/Pre) had two inputs you could do that.
But most people are going to have one connection between their core and the endpoint, so you will only get to set up one Zone.
