I’m trying to find this answer on both the Roon and the HDPlayer forums too, but I’ve been struggling. Apologies if it’s a dumb question or has been answered elsewhere here, but I couldn’t find it.
I am a heavy Roon user (running on a Mac) and I just got my Direct Stream today with the Bridge II. It of course was as near to plug-and-play as I could have hoped and once I plugged in the network cable to the DS, Roon immediately found it as an endpoint. It sounds outstanding and I’m still playing with various configs. Its my first time having an MQA dac and so that’s been cool too.
I have HDPlayer loaded on the Mac too, and with previous end-point/DACs where I had the SOTM equipment connected to the Mac via a thunderbolt-to-ethernet and bridged in the Mac, I could use HD Player and have it find the DAC easily.
In this system, however, the Mac is in the basement and I need to go through a router to get to this network connection, so I can’t bridge to the Bridge II/DS.
My question is this: Can HQPlayer be configured to stream to a remote endpoint on the network that’s not directly bridged to it’s machine? Anyone doing that directly or with Roon?
