    Our app needs to be engaged in Windows. So if Roon Nucleus is based on this OS and our software can be enabled and set it in there, then it should work. Otherwise, nope.

    I use my Pro iDSD with a SonicTransporter i5 which is similar to the Nucleus. Here is my setup: SonicTransporter connected to router via ethernet. Sonore ultraRendu connected to router via ethernet. iDSD connected to ultraRendu via USB. Roon sees the ultraRendu as an endpoint and it all works just great. Controlled by iMac and I use an iPad as a remote. No problems at all. Hope this helps.

    A quick update regarding my noise issue. I’m happy to report that 90 percent or so of the noise has disappeared after allowing one of the iDSD Pro units to sit a few days disconnected from the mains power, then attaching the wifi aerial to the wifi terminal on the rear of the unit. After reconnecting to the mains, most of the noise I had previously experienced is no longer present.

    I had initially assumed that connecting the wifi antenna would increase noise, but it seems that it may have reduced it. In any event, I will report back should the noise resurface or if I gain any further insight.

    How can you tell which version of the iFi firmware your iFi Pro iDSD is using?

    I have an iDsd / iCan pro combo and an Amp with Speakers connected to the iCan. They are wired via Xlr cabels.

    Can I set the iDsd to Pro (fixed) mode? Does the iCan decetects that automatically? And does this affect the connected speakeramplifier?

    Happy New Year

    Yup, iDSD should be set to fixed to bypass its volume control. But let us ask you about your amp and speakers?

    Right now it is set to hifi (fixed), but I have read that pro should sound better.

    I am not sure if the iCan pro passes the 11,2 V to my advance paris bx1 amp. Or should I leave the iDsd in hifi mode?

    I’d still appreciate an answer to my question:

    “How can you tell which version of the iFi firmware your iFi Pro iDSD is using?”

    Thanks!

    Have you seen this page?

    Ideally you'd want to connect your amp directly to Pro iDSD and regulate its volume via Pro iDSD. In this scenario you'd have to set your iDSD's outputs as 'hifi variable'. The goal here is to have as short signal path as possible. Since you don't need Pro iCAN for your amps, Pro iDSD to your amp is what we'd suggest.

    But if you'd like to have Pro iDSD and Pro iCAN connected all the time and still be able to use your bx1 amp, then on your Pro iDSD you need to disengage its volume control (set the rear knob on hifi fixed). Now your Pro iDSD will send signal to your Pro iCAN's balanced inputs. Then you go from your Pro iCAN's balanced outputs to your amp.

    TL;DR:
    • your amp connected to Pro iDSD = hifi variable
    • your amp connected to Pro iCAN and Pro iDSD = Pro iCAN in 'hifi variable' mode, Pro iDSD in 'hifi fixed' mode.

    Just start the firmware update program again (just start it, don't run it). The first screen shows you the current version. You can then exit without running the update again.
