About RAAT(Roon Advanced Audio Transport) mode
The RAAT mode improves the sound via Roon by disabling unnecessary processings except for Roon processing and using the CPU power exclusive for Roon precessing.
When the RAAT mode is selected, every network function/control except Roon is disabled, including remote control from the TEAC HR Streamer and other OpenHome-based remote control apps, as well as other streaming services including Spotify Connect, Tidal, TuneIn and Qobuz.
*Streaming services from Tidal and Qobuz via Roon app is still enabled when the RAAT mode is selected.
※*In case Ronn, Spotify Connect, Tidal, and Qobuz are not in used, turning those functions off from the Network Player Option menu on the TEAC HR Streamer app improves sound quality when listening to streaming music from NAS music server.
