ROCK / Intel NUC 10i7FNH 8GB/ Roon Version 1.8 build 795.
Core is connected via ethernet to AVM Fritzbox 7590 router
Network Streamer: Primare NP5 (Wi-Fi connection); connected via optical output to DAC (Chord Qutest).
For the Primare NP 5 I have made the following choices in the audio settings of the device: Fixed output (i.e. no volume control), native playback, sample rate 192 kHz. I do not see any other options, e.g. regarding DSD playback
4000 tracks, streaming via Qobuz and from external harddrive connected to core
Description of Issue
I am playing a DSD file from an external harddrive connected to the core. The signal path indicates a conversion to PCM (see screenshot).
When I navigate to Device setup in Roon, I do not see an option regarding DSD playback (e.g. Native, DoP).
The DAC seems to indicate DSD playback, if I decipher the color scheme of the DAC correctly (see ‘viewing glass’ in the photos). Can you explain what the sample rate conversion does? Is DSD really being played? Thank you for providing any information on this issue.
That should allow dsd over dop up to 256 I think.
Only way to get dsd512 into it would be from a windows machine using the asio drivers.
But why bother?
Chord Quest converts it back to PCM so just feed it the best PCM possible.
I upsampled everything to 384 when I had my Qutest. That was before my Lumin T2 which I do feed dsd 512.
