Hello, I want to buy a Roon Nucleus, I have an SSD with 2 TB albums. I am leaning towards the Nucleus and not the Plus due to the price. However, since I have quite a few Flac albums in 24/192 and DSD, I’m not sure if I can play them then, I think I read that the Nucleus plays a maximum of 24/96 files. Is this correct?
(Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!)
The Nucleus does not play anything really, it will just pass on the music to a dac of your choice and that will be the limiting factor on resolution.
A Nucleus should be good for 24/768 pcm and even dsd512 processing power wise unless you are doing a lot of other heavy lifting with it as well.
