Do think so … if Roon is switched off and when playing Tidal masters (MQA) through native BluOS app it works fine.
Ergo, all MQA unfold has been taken care of by NAD M10.
Nevertheless I do want Roon integration managing my music collection on NAS together with complementary streaming services as Qobuz and Tidal.
Setting MQA capabilities to “renderer only”, does work but unit is still not stable, ie. NAD M10 ends up frozen or does reboot (all possible combinations have been tested with this new firmware version as well as previous ones in the past).
If playing Roon through NAD M10 I do experience on a daily basis 2 to 3 times a frozen unit as well as similar amount of non scheduled rebooting.
NAD M10 marriage with Roon and together with streaming services, NAS stored music, Dirac Live is an unhappy one.
When buying M10, NAD was adverising this particalar machine being able to fully integrate with Roon.
As per today this particular claim has been removed from all advertisements, datasheets, manuals, etc.
This gives me the impression M10 will never work flawlessly together with Roon - NAD sold me an electronic paper weight.
As written above above I am seriously considering to upgrade to a Mytek setup and especially Brooklyn Bridge which has hardware MQA decoder onboard.
Software / firmware on M10 is not up to the initial promises made.
