I’ve had a bit of a dig through the forums and the FAQ’s for roon itself and I can’t really quite seem to find the answer I need.
I’m looking for hints on best practice when using MQA on a non MQA Dac. My Peactree DAC does 24/192 quite merrily but no MQA.
I have the MQA settings on roon set to “no MQA support”, yet further down theres another option for “use MQA Core decoder” which seems to be ticked, in spite of having no MQA. Turning this on and off seems to make no difference to the signal path.
I assume with my non MQA DAC that roon is doing all the unfolding and decoding, and is being passed to my DAC at whatever bitrate is left (usually 24/96).
Sounds fine, but wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing a trick
