I’m out at the moment but if it’s connected via usb to the zenith, you should see it shown in the audio tab under settings as connected to this core. This is the zone to which you should be playing to, and unless you have other Squeezebox equipment you should turn off the Squeezebox option in Roon
If you are using your Zenith in Roon Server mode, your Nagra DAC should be visible under “Connected to Core” section in Settings-.Audio.
Just enable it there, and then select it as a zone in Roon. Don’t bother with SqueezeLite in your scenario…
many thx for your support! In the meantime I understand the overall system much more and I was able to use the Roon Core as “Server” and connect to the DAC directly! Everything works fine and the sound quality is a quality higher. More 3D, more “live feeling” … absolutely great! Thx so much!
Please let me ask another question regarding the files: The Nagra Classic DAC is able to play DSD 128 files, and I currently listen to “Friday Night in San Francisco” (DSD 64), but the DAC identifies it as DXD 352 input … what does this mean.
Dear All, thx again. Really helpful and supportive! Kind Greetings
I can’t remember exactly, but i think you need to tell the InnuOS that your DAC can do DSD DoP (up to DSD128)?
If not, please make sure that you have configured the Audio zone (Nagra Classic DAC) correctly in Roon:
Try the “Identify this device” from the top of your last screenshot, and search for Nagra. Im pretty sure your Classic is a Roon Tested Device(which means if you select it, all settings will be optimal)
Edit: But on your precious post, you show that Roon is playing DSD in DoP format to your DAC, which means it is actually receiving DSD in DoP-format. But the display still says DXD?
