First off all: I absolutely love my new DirectStream DAC, certainly in combination with the Bridge and Roon. Must really force myself to go to bed because I just want to keep listening and rediscovering my own music collection. LOVE IT, AWESOME!!
There is just one tiny glitch which I can’t get my finger behind because it is an intermittent problem. At times, the volume control in the Roon App stops working. The slider number shifts but the actual volume of the DAC does not change, all other functions in the App keep working perfectly. As soon as I use the standard remote to adjust the volume, the Roon App immediately syncs with that volume level and neatly follows the setting of the DS display. (yet it doesn’t pick up the control again)
Is this a know issue? I’m still in the process of detecting where this may come from so I’m even not ruling out my WiFi network at this stage.
[UPDATE Feb 2nd]
Roon 1.3 is a lot better, after switching songs there is a slight delay before it picks up the volume controls again, but that’s minor.
