Hi, looking for help with the following setup - I have a network DAC, a Bricasti M1, which is controlled by Roon for streaming music. Connected to the DAC are a pair of powered monitor speakers by XLR cable.
The speakers have a weird power setup. There is a switch at the back which keeps them either always on standby or totally off. There is a button at the front to actually turn them on in order to play music. This is the problem I’m trying to solve - my experience with this manufacturer is that it’s best not to keep power always on or the amplifier power supply will eventually burn out.
My (part) solution - insert something like this - ZOOZ ZEN15 POWER SWITCH – ZOOZ - on the speaker power cable. The part I’m seeking help from the community on is how to trigger power “on”. Ideally this would be linked to the network DAC. I thought maybe there is a way for HE to monitor network traffic to a specific LAN IP? I searched the forum but couldn’t find anything on that. I have a Microtik Hex router and UI switch/APs on my network. The DAC has a trigger input but the manual says it will trigger power to the DAC not from it. I think there’s one post on Roon on the forum but it didn’t look like that went anywhere. Worst case I could use a Caseta remote but would rather it be either linked to the DAC or to Roon, just not sure how to accomplish this.
