    Roon Extension to provide source switching, standby, and volume control for McIntosh Labs's range of devices via RS232

    This extension connects to your McIntosh device (Preamplifier, Integrated Amplifier, etc) via RS232, and allows Roon to control it's volume directly, as well as standby, and convience source switching.


    This extension was tested on Mcintosh C47 Preamplifier.


    This is my personal setup, but any Linux based device can be setup the same way:

    SoTM SMS-200
    -> USB audio -> USB cable -> McIntosh C47 DAC
    -> USB Serial port adapter -> RS232 Serial cable -> McIntosh C47
    
    Setup parameters (configured via Roon):
    - Serial Port: USB port on which the RS232 cable is used
    - Source for Convenience Switch: Numerical value of the McIntosh source which you want to use for Roon
    - Initial Volume: Volume used when the extension starts the McIntosh equipment
    - Startup Time: Time in seconds it takes to wake up all the audio equipment before any stream is started
