Adding Roon for Naim 272 Streamer

Recommended Posts

I have the Teddy/Naim272/250DR combo which my partner and I love listening to new music on Tidal.

I also have music stored on a Synology NAS. The 272 is on wifi and the NAS plugged into the router.

 

I want to add roon to enable more music discovery mainly.

I have googled extensively and the Naim 272 is not a roon endpoint, so I need to add a bridge of some sort to enable this, I think ?

 

Ease of use for my better half is a high priority, like most wives they just want to be able to click on an app on their phone and hear music.

So I don't want some semi diy Pi solution which will confuse her.

Conversely I don't want to pay megabucks for a streamer/endpoint combo that will be bettered in 18 months.

I am not allergic to getting a solution that will enable me to bypass the dac in the 272 and buy a standalone NOS or similar dac.

I would like roon to be able to stream to our bedroom, but don't need it to stream all over the house.

 

Budget ? $2,000 to $4,000.

I had a Naim 272 a few months ago and also wanted to stream Roon. The only solutions I saw were basically to add another streamer as an endpoint (eg Sotm, Allo, Pro-ject streambox) and then feed into the 272. It seemed a bit inelegant to me so I ended up just playing from my own NAS and Spotify. In the end I sold it to get something Roon ready. I went with a NADc658 since it had analog phono inputs, a streamer and also Room correction. 

 

so that was my experience - Good luck with your search!

This will do it.

I use one with my 272 and it works perfectly.

Thanks Tony B, do you bypass the dac on the Pi end point and still use the dac in the 272?

Yes, use the SPDIF or optical into the Naim. 

Just plug the power in and ethernet cable and Roon will see it.

Yep, It's currently setup as a Roon endpoint. I used the 12S connection and it sounded really good. 
There are 3 options to use this kit too :)
