DAC for iOS, Roon, headphones

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

With the Audioquest DACs out of the picture, given their abysmal performance, one wonders where to turn for a DAC to attach to an iOS device to listen to Roon. I bought an SMSL Idea DAC for this purpose, and it sounds great, but I can seldom get it to work with Roon. It’s mostly silence or clicking. It works fine with all other apps, but Roon works in a different way. When I do get it to work Roon can send it audio up to 768Khz, but that is one time in a hundred.

 

Does anyone know of a DAC that works with Roon and iOS for headphone listening?

I'd advice not trying to have Roon send inexpensive devices 768k. The bandwidth required is quite high, in the order of a few MB/sec and there wouldn't be any serious benefit.

 

What you haven't explained is under what circumstances you wish to use the device? Is it while walking around the house, or something else?
