I’m using a Raspberry Pi4 8GB with RoPieee installed set up as a Roon Bridge I am using a Khadas Tone Control DAC. The specifications of this DAC are listed as:
PCM: Up to 384KHz @ 32bit DSD: Up to DSD256 @ 1bit
Why can I stream a DSD512 file from my Synology NAS when my DAC only supports up to DSD256?
In Roon settings under device set up the Khadas Tone Control DAC settings are:
DSD Playback Strategy - Native
MQA Capabilities - No MQA Support
Volume Control - Fixed
Max Sample Rate (PCM) - Up to 384khz
Max bits per sample (PCM) - 32
Max sample rate (DSD) - Up to DSD512
Enable MQA Core Decoder - Yes
Why is Roon allowing me the option of selecting up to DSD512 and why is my DAC allowing an a DSD512 input to work?
