For Compatibility Only Setting

In the sample rate conversion settings there is the setting “For Compatibility Only” option. What is this setting for? I can not find any info on it in the Roon operating instructions.

That setting tells Roon to perform the minimal amount of sample rate conversion required to make the audio file you are playing match the capabilities of the hardware you are playing to.

For example, Sonos hardware has a limit that it can only play audio up to 48khz and 16 bits per sample, so if you try to play a 96khz/24bit per sample file to a Sonos device Roon will downsample to 48/16.

Thank you Ben!
