Sorry if this question has been asked and answered, I couldn’t find it even in the Roon specs page.
What is the highest bit-rate and sample rate available from the USB outputs?
What is the highest bit-rate and sample rate available from the other outputs?
Sadly my current DAC has a maximum input of “only” 24/192 via optical or coax SP/DIF and only 16/44.1 via USB.
I am shopping for a USB>SP/DIF converter but would like to “future proof” my system and get a converter that will take advantage of the highest bit rates available from the Nucleus…
I will also send HDMI to my Marantz PrePro (or possibly Cat5 if that will work).
Thanks in advance for your replies.
Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply.
That’s probably the max for all Nuclueus outputs?
Note that DSD512 requires kernel driver recognition of your DAC as ‘DSD native’ capable. Otherwise, the max you will get is DSD256 via DoP.
This isn’t necessarily a big problem, but every time a new DAC comes along, it does take a while to get added. The Ropieee and DietPi folks seem to be the quickest about updating their kernel builds to recognize new native DSD DACs.
Yes, 768K+DSD512 is the max supported by Roon (subject to the limitations of the individual endpoint it is playing to, of course).
I don’t think the HDMI output on the Nucleus (or NUCs in general) goes that high, though; only the USB interface (and subject to kernel driver recognition as stated above). Someone else will have to correct me if I’m wrong.
Great, thanks guys. What a community.
