Arcam irDac 2 DAC problem

Hello I have problems with the Arcam irDac 2, I have same sound to comparaison to my Advance Acoustic XI75 amplifier.

I need help please

It would be really helpful if you could explain precisely what is the problem. It isn’t clear at all from your post.

The problème i have a ampli advance acoustic xi75 with dac integred i buy thé arcam irdac 2 thé sound is same to m’y ampli why ?

Please describe your setup and also share the signal path when connected to (a) the Advance Acoustic and (b) the Arcam. Both have a USB DAC: Wolfson WM8740 vs ESS ES9016K2M. Whilst the ESS may be a better performing DAC the limiting factor could be your integrated DAC/ amplifier (590 €) and speakers. Describing your setup will help determine if there is a problem.

Thé arcam conected to m’y PC to USB b going after to câble rca to m’y ampli m’y operating système its windows 10 64 bit i listen music to deezer or foobar 2000 juste i ni understand why thé dac arcam sound same to thé dac integred to m’y advance acoustic xi75 m’y speaker ils advance acoustic kubik k5s

We really need to see your signal path, for example:

So why are you posting in Roon support?

As I said earlier, your amplifier and [unknown] speakers may not be sufficiently resolving for you to hear the difference between MP3 and high-resolution audio.
