My Roon Core and endpoint is a Microsoft Surface Pro i5. It’s connected to a Denon receiver via HDMI. The audio device in Roon shows up as Intel WASAPI. It defaulted to no MQA. I manually changed this to Decode and Render. I’m still not getting the MQA version of tracks to play.
Is the Denon receiver an MQA Decoder or renderer ? That menu is used to disable MQA software decoding and/or preserve rendering information if the end device has MQA capabilities. If your Denon receiver is not MQA capable then leave it on “No MQA Support”.
MQA versions can be found on Tidal under the Masters tab, otherwise you have to buy or download MQA albums.
Go to device setup of your playback device. It is in there. It determines how Roon sees your kit and will then compensate. If your kit can’t do MQA then Roon does what it can. Top left, drop down, settings, audio, cogs next to zone name.
