On my BL90 and Roon you can change volume three ways.

1. Change using IR eye and Essence remote.

2. Change using BL90 app

3. Change in Roon

I use option 1.

You must try Roon - it is beautiful and sophisticated.

Thank you very much for the inspiration and info.

I am seriously considering a Mac+ROON as a source instead of something as a Auralic.

For the price of an Auralic G2 a nice Mac based solution can be envisioned.

This is excellent advice. Thanks you again.

I have now switched from Deezer to Tidal and installed ROON.

I am impressed at the richness of the experience ROON gives next to the audio quality of course.

Music listening via

NAS + Tidal ==> ROON on Mac Mini ==> optical BL50

Given the distance between the Mac mini and the BL50 the optical cable I use is an 8 meters audioquest cinnamon optical cable.

Remote control via

iPad mini with ROON and B&O app for volume and presets

Essence remote in IR mode for BL50 volume control

For Movie or Radio the Avant uses PowerLink toward the BL50

And on the go I have then Tidal on the iPhone and iPad mini.

In this set-up the BeoSound Core is not needed anymore so that will be returned to the Dealer.

Those, who are interested in the Roon software - and find a Mac Mini a bit to much/overkill - might be interested in these articles from an expert:

If you also have a BeoRemoteOne (IR) then you can configure it easily so you can switch it to BeoSound mode. Then you can control the volume also with the BR1.

I do this. Convenient.

When gong into a music listening session I switch the BR1 to BeoSound mode.

The Avant does not listen then but that is in standby then anyway.

And the light control still works also in BeoSound mode.
