Description of Issue

According to the Roon official tweet and Astell & Kern manual specification, the AK HC2 should support native DSD256. In Roon device setup page, the audio device has been set to Astell & Kern HC2 and I also tried click load defaults as shown below:

However, I can only choose the max sample rate for DSD up to DSD128.

I tired play som DSD256 track and found they will downsampled. Any possible solutions to play native DSD256? Thanks!

(I am using the latest Roon Remote version 2.0 (build 1133) production on MacBook Air with M1 chip)

Not when you use Mac.

Try Windows.

Thanks for the info!
