Got a question on the D2 RESAMPLING SETTINGS. My setup is quite simple.
I have the Lumin D2 connected to my tube integrated amp. Connection is using RCA Interonnect.
When I look at the resampling section.
Streaming a file 44.1khz and I tested the upsampling rate to Native to 176.4khz.
The Native sound horrible, the details are all gone.
And when I comparing from 176.4 vs 88.2khz, It seems like 88.2khz is more clear and wide open.
This is what I ask to clarify. Isn’t is for upsampling, DSD is the highest right, then 176.4. Shouldn’t they supposed to sound the best if set to either one ? In my case, it seems not though. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Then later when i connect my system differently. I use my McIntosh C52 preamp connected to the Lumin D2 using the Coaxial Digital Cable, I use C52 as a DAC. On the Lumin, If I chose Native and other upsampling rate, they sound pretty much the same. I remember Native from other setup sound horrible, but once I use the digital connection, Native sound quite nice.
I am just getting little confused with the setting.
Any help will be great.
