OK, I’ve just taken delivery of the D2 and it sounds absolutely gorgeous through my LFD Zero mkIII amp and Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 speakers. I am streaming both from a local NAS drive with everything from CD-quality FLAC/ALAC (very few mp3s) to hi-res files up to 192kHz, as well as from a Tidal HiFi account.
I was wondering about the setting for best possible audio quality for everything including MQA. Currently, I have the D2 set to upsample evertything lower 176.4kHz to DSD and keep everything higher at native resolution. DSD is set to Bitstream. Does that make sense?
Other settings I’ve done: Switch digital output to off (using the analog ones), MQA mode to Analog Output.
Would love to hear feedback. Thanks!
