@support (@to whom it concerns),
I have the Linn Organic DAC Upgrade in my Linn Klimax DSM2 for a few days. The Linn Klimax DSM with Katalyst DAC is therefore at the technical level of the new Klimax DSM3. Internally at Linn (due to the upgrade) it is referred to as the Klimax DSM/3U.
The Organic DAC has the following specifications (screenshot from the technical description)
Now to my problem, for which I am hoping for help or a solution:
The Organic DAC has a resolution of 24Bit/384 kHz and DSD 256. And it can also handle the high resolution. If I play one of my recordings in this high resolution (352,8 kHz) via a UPNP server (Twonky) and the Linn app, both the app and the Klimax DSM3U display this resolution.
Screenshot Linn App showing the resolution:

Now I play the identical recording on Roon. You can see that the recording is in 24Bit 352.8 kHz.
Now comes the problem. Roon does not pass this resolution on to the device, but downsamples it. Note: No DSP function or resampling is activated. All settings are standard.
The lower resolution is also shown on the Klimax display:
I check the audio settings to see if I’m missing something, but it only shows my Linn Klimax with the correct IP address
My guess is that Roon is not correctly recognizing the Klimax with the Organic DAC Upgrade. On Linn’s own configuration page, the Klimax DSM/3U is correctly recognized and (intentionally?) overlaid with the image of the new Klimax DSM3.
So it doesn’t seem to be a problem for Linn to correctly identify the device. I have no problem with the Organic DAC upgrade being identified as the new Linn Klimax DSM3. The technical specifications are identical.
And that would be my request that Roon do the same. Even if I only have 5 recordings in total that have such a high resolution, I would still prefer to be able to hear them in the original resolution via Roon.
