Description of Issue
How to find DSD files to play to test I2S HDMI pin configuration works for both PCM Max upscale (x2) and DSD. I only play Tidal and Qobuz via Roon. My Denafrips get can handle PCM DSD everything but MQA. Max upscale works fine for PCM.
Thanks. To be OCD about it -if a DSD file was ever ( however unlikely) to turn up thru Tidal or Qobuz and I had PCM Max(x2) on, then Roon would automatically covert the DSD to PCM? ( i.e no surprise noise thru the speakers).
It depends on your solution. Because i2S is a dumb format (it can’t talk back to Roon to self identify it’s capabilities) then you have to do that yourself. You can set Roon to simply convert any DSD to PCM which would prevent the scenario you are worried about.
